In addition to our major productions, the Players present a monthly staged-reading series, typically on the first Friday night of each month. Modeled after a literary salon, the presentations consists of a one-hour staged reading, followed by snacks and a moderated discussion, giving actors, directors, writers, and audience an opportunity to explore different kinds of theater in a relaxed, friendly setting.
If you are interested in being considered as an actor for this series, please contact producer Laura MacGregor with your contact information. If you’re a writer or director interested in presenting a reading, email Laura about your proposed play(s) and schedule.
Our next staged reading is:
January 12, 2018 at 8:00pm at Augustana Lutheran Church, 5500 South Woodlawn Avenue.
Two men sit in a lifeboat, ravaged by malnutrition and hunger, haunted by dreams of home, and by each other. They joke, they tell stories, they quarrel, and they fight. And slowly, they must come to terms with the awful truths of their predicament.
