Conch Shell Productions & HB Studio have come together to co-produce #BlueLightSeries - play readings on Facebook live. Each short play explores the concept of being/feeling trapped and/or stuck and how to overcome that experience.

In the past, grants and donations allowed us to provide CSP actors with stipends. THE COVID pandemic has hit Conch Shell Productions hard. We don't qualify for current relief grants because we don't have 501(c3) status. Your donations will support our efforts to finance payroll and administrative costs.
March 5th-7th 2020 we presented new plays and screenings of short films written by Caribbean-American female artists. Click below to get a peek into our 2020 festivity.
So you've written a full-length script.
You want it to be produced by a theater/film company.
What should you do first?
1) Sent your script to production companies and/or submit it writing competitions.
2) Send it to a dramaturg who will give you a detailed script analysis that will help you fully realize your vision for your script.
If you wanted to pick #2, but you are wondering "What is a dramaturg?", here are some responses from dramaturges:
"Dramaturges are expert in 1) thematic structure, 2) contextualizing dramatic work and 3) helping the writer get from page-to-production."
"We help the writer find their own context...give them space to 'bleed out' beyond what they envisioned to answered questions that may come up in to the mind of the person considering the script for production and/or in the rehearsal room."
