Staged Reading Series

 

Once a month, 5th Wall presents a staged reading of a new work, followed by a Critical Response session where the audience (yes, we mean you) is invited to give feedback to the writer. The Critical Response, modeled after the work of Liz Lerman, is designed to provide the playwright with meaningful feedback that they can use to take the next steps in developing their work-in-progress.

Each season, two of these scripts will be selected for a full production in the following season.

All staged readings are pay-what-you-will (suggested minimum $5).
