Should We Do This Play?
July 1 - July 15, 2013
A series of staged readings that will culminate in a fully stage production (We hope!) How does it work? We will produce 3 staged readings over three Mondays in July. Next season we will produce one of the three 3 plays. But we're indecisive. Help us decide which play to produce!
GRUESOME PLAYGROUND INJURIES by Rajiv Joseph

EXIT PURSUED BY A BEAR by Lauren Gunderson
Nan decides its finally time to leave her abusive husband Kyle and make a run for it, so she duct-tapes him to a recliner, covers him in honey and invites the neighborhood bear in for a snack.
BACHELORETTE by Leslye Headland
Ten years out of high school three bachelorettes gather to celebrate their frenemy’s wedding. They’ve got a purse full of pills, a tub full of champagne, and enough regret to last a lifetime.
