What is a staged reading? It’s a rehearsed read-through of a script, with actors and movement and emotion, but without a full set or costumes. It gives the playwright a chance to see their words “come alive”. But the most important part of a staged reading? You! As soon as the plays are over we’ll have a short talk-back, and that is where we need your help. See the living plays in person; your input is invaluable.
