A space where we come together virtually and in person to discuss plays we  have read by BIPOC playwrights. Join us every month for a new play that you will read for the month then come to discuss it with us at the end of the month and some months we even have a watch party of the play before we discuss it!


*When you RSVP for your FREE ticket you will be sent a link to the play club meeting we will also send you a pdf of the play to read, so you are prepared for the discussion, if available. We may even have the playwright sit in to discuss the play with us for some meetings! We will also be recording each play club meeting for promotional purposes, however feel free to leave your cameras off for the discussion or to decline being filmed in person, if you choose.
