Plays In Progress

Join City Book this Saturday, February 11, from 7:00-9:00 pm for an evening of staged dramatic readings from five Pittsburgh-area playwrights. The event is free.

A staged reading is a performance of a play without costumes or sets, voiced by actors while seated or moving only minimally. The stage directions are read aloud by a narrator. The purpose of a staged reading is to provide the writer or director insight into the effectiveness of the drama while it’s being developed. Audience feedback after the show is an integral part of the process. Celebrate Valentine’s Day a little early and experience the collaborative energy of drama as it’s made. Please see the City Books website for bios of the playwrights.
