The Edgemar Center for the Arts is a two-theater complex located in the Frank Gehry building in the heart of Santa Monica, with board members including Steven Spielberg, Jason Alexander, Neil Simon, Kate Capshaw, and others.

We are looking for full-length and one-act PLAYS to be included in our monthly reading of selected scripts, which may then be considered for production by the company.
