PARLEY is casting the world premiere workshop of THE LIST, a new play by associate playwright Greg Brisendine and directed by Rebecca Tourino Collinsworth.

ABOUT THE PROCESS:
Our process is unconventional; it is designed with the needs of new work in mind. We rehearse our plays twice a week for four consecutive weeks in order to allow the playwright ample time to observe the process, absorb the actors' discover-ies and challenges, and use that information to inform and inspire a revision pro-cess. In the final week, we perform and celebrate.

MISSION:
Parley is a weekly playwrights' group as well as a producing entity. The term "par-ley" derives from the French verb "parler": to speak. Historically, a parley was a meeting between adversaries in order to negotiate an end to battle. To signal a will-ingness to talk peaceably, armies would run up a white flag. Writing is a solitary act. It's easy for playwrights who feel isolated to become defensive. Our group seeks to cure that condition. By committing to a process of reading, discussing, and producing one another's work, we surrender the lone struggle and move creatively forward together.

Make plays, not war.
