We need your help! Share your insights at a Saturday Series reading. Witnessing play development in action is exciting and invigorating, for both the artists and the audience, which is why the Saturday Series is our longest running program. Visit our Saturday Series page for more information on upcoming readings. The post-show discussion is necessary for writers, who are there to learn what is working within their play. Please come and share your thoughts.
