The First Reads Festival is a marathon of readings of full plays written by our playwrights and selected to be a part of The PG Evolution a development process. Scenes from these plays have been featured throughout the Volumes. Prior to this table read all the plays were a part of Required Reading and now we are presenting them to be heard for the first time in full.
Actors from our casting pool have been cast and will sit around a table and read the plays for the benefit of the playwright. The audience will be invited to observe this process and be an active participant by filling out The PG Evolution Play Analysis Questionnaire to help the playwright continue to develop their work
