ATC’s Digital Play Reading Series invites the audience into the play-making process to observe the actors face-to-face as they read the play in its developmental stages. It’s not fancy or complete … it’s an in inside look at innovative new works by up-and-coming playwrights that usually aren’t made available to the public. Join us for this unique peak behind the curtain until we can present Mainstage Productions again.
