What is First Draft? A community of playwrights, actors, and directors that meets periodically to encourage local playwrights and explore new plays via table readings, staged readings, discussion, and other methods.  First Draft, a fixture at WDL for many years, is now returning by popular demand.

When/When are the meetings? Meetings are held on the first Wednesday of every month at 7pm.

Who can come? Anyone with an interest in new works and who is at least of high school age (minors will need to get a consent signed by parents).
