Member Stage Readings are an opportunity for members to hear their new plays with the support of the Playwrights' Center and our resources. For the 2012-13 season, based on feedback that members provided in the membership survey, we will begin offering two different types of member readings to best meet your needs and objectives. Member Stage readings are open to all Playwrights' Center members, except Core Writers and recipients of Playwrights' Center fellowships.Event Details
