ABOUT

Born out of a desire for camaraderie and the need to practice our craft, The Lafayette Salon Series (est. 2009) was founded by Stewart Walker (born in Frankfurt, Germany), Jane Cortney (London, England) and Mac Brydon (San Diego, California). The three, colleagues and friends, set out to create an event where plays and screenplays are performed once a month.

Since its beginning in Greenwich Village, in the heart of New York City, The Salon has hosted readings of plays by ninety playwrights, from every decade since the 1860s, and has used over two hundred actors.

The Salon currently calls The Players Club in Gramercy home.
