play readings


Each year we present several new plays in development through our "TSP Unplugged" Reading Series. Readings are produced using the Actors' Equity Staged Reading Code, and are presented over 1-2 nights during the run of a mainstage show by The Seeing Place. Thus, we produce readings in 2-3 programming times throughout the year.

We aim to do a mix of new & published works, giving new plays a venue for development and seasoned plays a fresh, organic revisit. We thematically pair readings with our mainstage plays to provide deep, meaningful programming that will engage a wide spectrum of audiences. We present a talkback after each reading to engage these audiences and, in the case of new plays, to aid the playwright in the developmental process.


Season 6 Schedule

FALL PROGRAM: December 4-20, 2015

Main Stage Shows: THE PILLOWMAN in rep with GIDION'S KNOT

This series focuses on the responsibility of those who stand in authority. How much can we trust that they have our best interests at heart? And when there's a tragedy in their domain, at whom should we point blame?

We are interested in presenting a public reading of a new play that fits within the theme listed above. Please review the submission instructions provided below, and note "Interested in Fall Program" with your submission.
