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.
