WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
SigWorks: Monday Night New Play Readings at Ali's Bar is an initiative that highlights and supports the work of DMV (Washington, D.C., Maryland, Virginia) playwrights. This (free!) reading series is an opportunity for playwrights, actors, directors, designers, and patrons to explore new plays in a fun and informal environment. On the day of a play's reading, the play first receives a mini-developmental workshop with professional actors. The reading follows and is in turn followed by a dialogue with the audience and the artists. Here's the 2016-17 lineup:
Alabaster by Audrey Cefaly - October 3
Dogwood Cross by Michael Trottier - November 14
Fortune Cookies for Easy Women Smoking Loose Cigarettes by Dani Stoller - February 6
The Reapers on Woodbrook Avenue by Mardee Bennett - April 27
Swimming With Whales by Bob Bartlett - June 5
