Play selected SHARK WEEK by Tom Misuraca

We received many good plays and monologues submitted for possible recording and inclusion in the next Podcast episode, "A Midsummer's Podcast" but we only have the resources to record one.

We selected SHARK WEEK by Tom Misuraca.

You can learn more about Tom and his play - an interview with Tom will be included in the Podcast.

Thanks to everybody who submitted work ~ we are sorry we couldn't include more.

An alternate way to include your work in the podcast

For those playwrights who are a little more tech savvy, a way to increase the likelihood that your work will be included in the NYCPlaywrights Podcast is to record it yourself.

Many people these days have recording devices - for instance the iPhone has a movie option in its Photos app. You can record your monologue or short play (no more than 10 minutes) and send it to us. You control all the aspects of the performance and get things just as you like them.
