MONDAY NIGHT DRAMA
Time to add more drama to your Monday nights! The Saturday Series, Dramatists’ longest-running program, has moved to Monday nights. This off night for the theatre industry allows us greater access to in-demand directors, actors, artistic directors, and producers PLUS attracts newer audiences already primed to attend evening performances over afternoons.
Monday night events will consist of public readings of plays-in-progress from our Resident Playwrights as well as other exciting additions, panel discussions, fireside chats with visiting artists, and more!
About the Monday Night Series
On select Mondays at 7:00pm, Chicago Dramatists hosts a Monday Night Series event in our theatre. Most Series events are public readings of plays-in-progress, though some are special Master Panels or fire-side chats with artists.
All plays read in the Monday Night Series are directed, rehearsed, and presented with minimal staging. After each reading, the audience members are invited to fill out written response sheets or (when the playwright is amenable) join in a moderated post-reading discussion.
Ticket revenue only covers 10% of the total cost for the Monday Night Series. Please consider giving a gift to Chicago Dramatists today to support these public play readings.
