THE ROSE THEATRE CO's Reading Series
Tuesday, December 10, at 7:30 pm
FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
THE ROSE THEATRE CO's Reading Series FIRST DRAFT celebrates the idea that new plays have an important place in the future of American theater and that audiences are an integral part of the process. That's why all our new play readings are free-of-charge and available at friendly accessible venues.
Come experience a new adaptation of the holiday classic by Helen Hayes award-winner Peter Coy. The evening is gift wrapped in original compositions of traditional carols debuting The Rose in-house musicians: THE GAMMUT and a spoken word rendition of THE LITTLE MATCH GIRL. Performances begin at 7:30pm and are part of The Rose New Play Development Series | First Draft. A guided audience discussion with the creative team, playwright and actors follows each performance.
Over a dozen seasons, THE ROSE THEATRE CO's Reading Series has been lucky to work with some of the most vibrant playwrights in the country. We've debuted over 45 new plays with more than half receiving full productions in DC, on Broadway and around the globe.
