Play Reading for Play Lovers – Virtual on Zoom!

Do you love language and theatre? Have you ever found it challenging to read rather than see a play? Do you love reading plays but wish it were a more social activity? Join Artistic Director Marti Lyons and your classmates in an intimate and animated “book club” conversation discussing the writing, contexts, techniques, and theatrical ideas of 10 plays and their playwrights over the first half of our season, with a focus on two plays from an individual playwright each month. For this session, we’ll be reading works from Octavio Solis, Noel Coward, Sarah Ruhl, Pearl Cleage, and David Henry Hwang. Join us for the full class or drop in to any session! Discover the joys of studying plays and theatrical writing in all sorts of new ways!

This class will take place online via Zoom – participants must be able to attend the class in real time, as it will not be recorded.

DATES: Second Monday of the month – July 10, August 14, September 11, October 9, November 13

TIME: 6:00-8:00PM

COST: $49 per class drop-in rate

Individual class registrations can be found below. Play Reading for Play Lovers will take place virtually over Zoom. A Zoom link will be sent to registrants via email with the rest of the class materials prior to the start of the session.

We’re partnering with The Understudy!

Remy Bumppo is excited to partner with The Understudy in Andersonville for our upcoming session of Play Reading for Play Lovers!

While purchasing the plays is not a requirement, The Understudy will have hard copies of the plays that class registrants will dive into. We highly encourage you to support this new and local small business that holds a special place in our community!
