MDC Relocates for 2019


New Year's means New Location, New Time, New Night

2018 has been a year of change for Midwest Dramatists Center. We successfully hosted our second annual national playwriting conference. One of our founding members moved away, transitioning from being a vital part of day-to-day operations to a position on the advisory board.

Now The Writers Place has closed the doors on the castle on Pennsylvania, and we must vacate the beautiful stone building in the Valentine neighborhood that was our home for four years. We are sad to be moving away from it, but we are excited for what the future holds.

Read more about the Writer's Place closing here.

While we work diligently to procure a new permanent home, we have found a wonderful host for our 2019 Reading Series.

Starting in January, join us at our new time and place: 6:30 p.m. on the 3rd Monday of each month at the Uptown Arts Bar. 3611 Broadway Blvd, Kansas City, MO 64111. Uptown Arts Bar opens at 6:00 p.m.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Jennifer Baker's "All That Pretty" Reading Dec. 10

Join us for a reading of All That Pretty by new MDC resident playwright Jennifer Baker.

All That Pretty is about the moral deterioration of a white family after the "other" moves into their neighborhood in the 1970's.

The reading will be held at 7:00pm on Monday, December 10. 


This reading will take place at the Just Off Broadway Theatre, 3015 Penn Valley Drive in Penn Valley Park.  Take note that we will no longer be having our readings at the Writer's Place. 



See you there!
