Spring is a time for rebirth and renewal. Here at Nora’s Playhouse we are springing ahead toward restarting our beloved salon reading series, The Nora Salon!

Our Alabama team will be leading the charge; we are now accepting submissions for upcoming gatherings of Nora’s Salon South!

For Nora’s Salon South, we welcome submissions of any genre and length, provided they:

  1. Are by women playwrights,
  2. Centrally feature women’s stories and perspectives, and
  3. Have not yet had a production.

Finished pieces and works-in-progress both welcome.

Please email your submission along with a brief cover letter that includes a 150-200 word synopsis of the play to Jacqueline Viskup at

(For some answers to frequently asked questions about our salons, please visit our website.)

Our first in-person salon reading post-COVID will take place in Montgomery, Alabama this spring. Keep an eye on your inbox for all the details. We have a script picked out and are now in the process of figuring out the when and the where.

New York supporters, we haven’t forgotten about you! In the coming weeks, we hope to wake up fully from our pandemic hibernation and have some details about NYC’s The Nora Salon for you. Stay tuned!


Happy Holidays & Thank You!

All of us here at Nora’s Playhouse hope your holidays have been merry!

As we head into 2023, we wanted to take a moment to say THANK YOU to all of our supporters, volunteers, members, and collaborators who helped to rouse us from our pandemic slumber in 2022. We couldn’t have done it without you!

In May, you joined us as Nora’s celebrated (and raised awareness of our cause and funds for our work) at the marvelous Hot Pink Party. This fall, we couldn’t have brought Martha Pichey’s Ashes & Ink to audiences in Montgomery, Alabama without the hard work of a lot of fabulous people and the loving support of all who bought tickets to see this powerful and intelligent new play. And, in 2022, we were fortunate to receive generous grants from both the Alabama State Council on the Arts and the Leonore Foundation in support of our efforts to create professional opportunities for women theatre artists to collaborate to tell women’s stories.

We’re looking forward to bringing back other programming like The Nora’s Salon, Salon South, and The Nora Project: Women Write in the coming months. We will keep you posted as we figure out all of the details.

Wishing you a bright and happy new year!
