THE TED SNOWDON READING SERIES
Formerly known as [email protected], the Ted Snowdon Reading Series is an annual series of rehearsed play readings dedicated to the support and development of innovative new work. Since 1999, plays developed through these readings have gone on to full productions at MTC, elsewhere in New York and around the country.
Four years ago, the series was restructured to give playwrights the time and resources needed to prepare their plays for a full production, whether at MTC or elsewhere. The new and improved series feature four plays instead of seven, so that each would have an entire week to rehearse. In addition, the readings take place during the day, so that more industry professionals can attend. We’ll announce the 2018 series later this season, and hope you’ll join us! Learn more.
Following each Saturday matinee performance* during the subscription run, there is a post-performance discussion offering insight and perspective on the current production. We invite you to join these discussions whether you attend the performance or not. If you would like to attend, and are not attending that Saturday’s performance, simply call the Patron Hotline for the running time of the show and arrive as the curtain comes down for some thought-provoking exchanges between our audience and artists.
Please Note: There will be NO Saturday afternoon post-performance discussions on November 18, 2017, November 25, 2017, February 3, 2018, February 10, 2018, and February 17, 2018.
