New, original writing, rehearsed in the afternoon and performed live in the evening, script-in-hand! A fantastic opportunity for local writers to see their work performed live with an audience. Each play will be followed by a short Q&A with the author, where we encourage the audience to ask questions and provide constructive feedback.
