Our Free Resident Artist Reading Series
Can’t get enough of our Resident Artists? Neither can we! In our free reading series, Words Within, our RAs produce staged readings of plays that complement our running season – whether it’s other plays written by the same author or exploring similar themes.
At Words Within, you get a front-row seat to the creative mind. The RAs are responsible for choosing, casting, and directing the play readings, so they can let loose in ways you’ve never seen them do before. Treat yourself to a fun, free night of theatre and join us!
All donations from Words Within benefit the Artistic Freedom Fund, which provides our artists with funding to pursue artistic projects.
Dates and plays are subject to change.
Exit, Pursued by a Bear
By Lauren Gunderson
Directed by Alan Blumenfeld
January 20 at 7pm
Runtime: approximately 80 minutes
This smart, dark revenge comedy leads us through a night of emotional trials and ridiculous theatrics. Playwright Lauren Gunderson, author of The Book of Will (heard this summer at our Resident Artist inVision reading festival), takes Shakespeare’s most famous stage direction and turns it (and us) on our heads.
