Audiences have opportunities year-round
to enjoy free readings of original works submitted to us for consideration
as a Summer Short.
Regional actors perform at various locations,
particularly at well-regarded Books & Books,
the Olympia Theater's Word Series,
and CityWrights readings.
These informal, entertaining gatherings
give audiences a chance to give feedback,
and contribute to our selection process,
while allowing a work to come off the page
with the use of actors and audience members,
the two most basic ingredients necessary
for producing a play.
A number of the plays produced at
are discovered at CITY READS.
