Bring 10 minutes of a work-in-progress for a special opportunity to help you develop it further. This cold reading series is a tip of the hat to Naked Angels’ “Tuesdays at 9,” a program that has helped playwrights develop their work for years in NYC and LA. This series if free to all artists and the public.

Read a Play!

DCPA Education hosts the reading of a play every session as an opportunity for actors and enthusiasts to read, listen and enjoy more stories. Each play will be selected by facilitator Kelly McAllister, and interested readers for the play will be “cast” at the beginning of the session that evening on a first come, first served basis. Scripts will be provided to readers on the evening of the event. This month’s reading will be The Great Pretenders by Hollice Stander. We hope you will join us to read, or listen and enjoy!
