jump start

Jump Start is Medicine Show's yearly series of staged readings of new works. Each rehearses 3-4 times and performs twice. This is a hands-on experience for the writers, who are present for at least one rehearsal and both performances so they can answer questions and make changes. Staging is anything actors can do script in hand, so writers experience their work both visually and orally. Directors and actors can stretch without full-performance pressure. 

We welcome submissions of new work throughout the year.
Send either by USPS to Medicine Show, 549 West 52 St., 3rd Floor, New York, NY 10019, or via email to medicineshow@medicineshowtheatre.org
