"To ___ or not to ____, that is the question..."

A community dedicated plays and playwrights.

Post about your favourite plays, playwrights and why you like them.

Write reviews on plays you have read or seen.

Tell us about any plays you are in or are writing. Ask for suggestions from our members that are writers.

Playwrights, actors, and anyone interested in theater are welcome.

The Rules

+ Be nice and respectful to all posters and commenters. I am here to maintain the community, not to babysit. I haven't seen any problems so far, but just in case, I'll put this rule here.

+ Keep on topic. they are listed above or anything else that has to do with plays or playwrights is fine.

+ No advertising your communities. There are places for that like community_promo. We don't want it here. Advertising a new play coming up or something to that degree is fine, or if your community is about the same subject this is, you may post about it here. But don't just give us a link, give us a description and I may even consider making it a sister community.

+ Anything that is lengthy, no matter what it is, MUST be placed under an lj-cut.If something is long (use your own judgement, but I don't want it assaulting our friends pages) and it is NOT put under an lj-cut, IT WILL BE DELETED and you will be warned. If this happens 3 times, you will be banned.

This is how to do an lj-cut:
(Before whatever your post is) <*lj-cut text="This is what your link will say"*>
(After your post) <*/lj-cut*>

Some helpful links:
