About Miami Writes:

Miami Writes is a Miami University Hamilton Theatre program dedicated to the fostering and production of new plays by student and local playwrights. The program began in 2004. Past productions have included works by Brandon Berning (Miami Hamilton student playwright whose Miami Writes-developed play, A Painted Life, won second place in the 36th annual Great Lakes Region Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival in 2005), Ruth Britt, Danielle Ervin, Roberta Flackwood and Bridget Ossmann. Ms. Ossmann’s work, the musical, Teachers Left Behind received a full production by MUH Theatre in 2010 in Parrish Auditorium. The Cincinnati Playwrights Initiative awarded this play and Ms. Ossmann’s more recent one, Purple Paint (a drama about a Kentucky coal mining family) the honor of readings at The Aronoff Center in Cincinnati. Allyson West’s 2015 Miami Writes submission winner, Texican, is now an award-winning film.

Be a part of this exciting evening of new works. Be the first to publicly perform these playwrights’ work. There is no prep necessary. Our process is designed to ensure your immediate response/interpretation, so we meet right before the reading to run over the plays quickly. Then we read them for the audience and the playwrights. This way the playwrights learn what is actually in their scripts as opposed to, say… what they thought was there. Contact me to get on the list of available actors. Being on the list does not guarantee you a spot, however. The logistics of casting determines whom we can use. Contact Bekka Eaton at to sign-up.
