play readings


Ever wondered how a theater ensemble goes about creating their work for the stage? Welcome to our TSP Unplugged Reading Series, where we take our audiences behind the curtain to experience the creation of storytelling with our artists. Each reading includes an invited dramaturgical session or rehearsalas well as a robust post-show talkback. Readings are produced using the Actors' Equity Staged Reading Code, and are presented over 1-2 nights within the mainstage season with The Seeing Place.


Season 8 Reading Schedule

For our 8th Season we're exploring stories that challenge our very sense of self. What happens when a person, place or event whip your identity into the opposite direction? With that, we're presenting readings of four dynamic plays - join our mailing list to be sure to receive your invitation.
