ATTENTION NYC PLAYWRIGHTS: Co-Op Theatre East is now accepting one-act plays for its play reading series COTE Tales at Kaffe 1668 in Tribeca. Plays should be no longer than 20 pages, and speak to one of this season's themes:

Plays should also fit COTE's mission statement: "Co-Op Theatre East believes in the power of art to foster a dialogue for social change. We provide an entertaining performance forum in which to ask evocative, challenging questions of artists and audiences on our way to creating collaborative answers."
