About This Show

In the Festival of New Plays, sponsored by Seymour and Ethel S. Frank, each play has two staged reading performances on consecutive evenings. These readings are performed and directed by theatre professionals and are followed by open discussion between the audience, actors, director and playwright, when in attendance. Playwrights whose work is presented receive a small honorarium.
