Loose Leaf Reading Series

The Loose Leaf Reading Series is designed to give playwrights an opportunity to see their latest draft performed by actors in front of an audience. The readings are rehearsed and directed, and often fully staged, with movement and basic props. Playwrights collaborate in rehearsals or round-table discussions of their plays, and benefit from feedback from actors, directors and audience members alike. Several of the pieces in the series have gone on to be produced or published by Dutch Kills and other theater companies.
