Unfortunately, our roundup today starts with not-great news: due to outside circumstances, we've had to cancel our October 24th reading. But! Those of you who have been looking forward to Brooke Berman’s Hurricane and Lavinia Roberts’ The Will (in other words, all of us) never fear – we’ll be featuring both in our Spring Series. Stay tuned!
Speaking of the Spring Reading Series, as of today, we have well over 100 scripts submitted for the consideration – a seasonal record! We’re pretty excited to finish reading all the submissions, and we’ll be letting you know what’s on the calendar for the new year in December.
In the meantime, we’ll be back at Jimmy’s on December 12th (mark your calendars!) for our final Fall reading. We’ll be hearing and discussing selections from Kristine M. Reyes’ Eggs on Ice and John Barrow’s Lillian Paula Carson. We’re thrilled to be working with these two playwrights, and can’t wait for you to hear their work.
Happy October! See you all soon.
