Signature Theatre has announced five new plays by D.C. area playwrights chosen out of 139 submissions to have readings as part of the SigWorks: Monday Night New Play Reading's at Ali's Bar series.

Now in its second year, the series is an initiative that highlights and supports the work of D.C.-area playwrights. Each play will receive a one-day mini-developmental workshop with professional actors the day of the reading. This series is an opportunity for playwrights, actors, directors, designers, and patrons to explore new plays in a fun and informal environment. Each reading will be followed by a dialogue with the audience and the artists.

This year's offerings will include Alabaster (October 3 at 7pm) by Audrey Cefaly, Dogwood Cross (November 14 at 7pm) by Michael Trottier, The Homecoming (February 6 at 7pm) by Dani Stoller, The Reapers on Woodbrook Avenue (March 27 at 7pm) by Mardee Bennett, and Swimming With Whales (June 5 at 7pm) by Bob Bartlett.

Ali's Bar, located in Signature Theatre's Mead Lobby, will be open before and after each reading.
