Our LAST Event of the YEAR!
Our series focuses on BIPOC playwrights who are based on the South and Westside of Chicago. We work with these playwrights through mentorship while workshopping their plays then we produce a semi staged reading of their work in front of an audience with a talkback. This helps the playwright to receive important feedback from not only their audience but their cast and director and this process helps them develop their work to be pitched to be fully produce at theatres throughout Chicago and beyond.
*Scorpio & Shed are both for ages 16 and up
