The Second Monday of Every Month (October-May)

The mission of The New Moon Reading Series is to support emerging playwrights by providing them with the opportunity to hear their new work read aloud by professional actors and to pose questions to, and receive feedback from audience members in a safe and constructive environment.

A play reading is a vital step in a playwright's process of developing a new play to the point where it is ready for a full production. Come be a part of the creative process! Each reading is followed by a talkback with the playwright.

No reservations necessary. $5 suggested donation at the door.
