Ever wondered how a theater ensemble goes about creating their work for the stage? Welcome to our TSP Unplugged Reading Series, where we take our audiences behind the curtain to experience the creation of storytelling with our artists. Each reading includes an invited dramaturgical session or rehearsalas well as a robust post-show talkback. Readings are produced using the Actors' Equity Staged Reading Code, and are presented over 1-2 nights within the mainstage season with The Seeing Place.

 

Season 7 Reading Schedule

For our 7th Season we're exploring stories that challenge our very sense of self. What happens when a person, place or event whip your identity into the opposite direction? With that, we're presenting readings of four dynamic plays - join our mailing list to be sure to receive your invitation.

 

1984
by George Orwell (Adapted by Matthew Dunster)

Directed by Brandon Walker

TSP Unplugged Reading Series - May 3, 2016 (7pm)

Presented on World Press Freedom Day

A man loses his identity while living under a repressive regime. In a story based on George Orwell's classic novel, Winston Smith is a government employee whose job involves the rewriting of history in a manner that casts his fictional country's leaders in a charitable light. His trysts with Julia provide his only measure of enjoyment, but lawmakers frown on the relationship -- and in this closely monitored society, there is no escape from Big Brother.

THE STRANGER
by Brandon Walker and Members of The Seeing Place Ensemble

Directed by Erin Cronican

TSP Unplugged Reading Series - Fall 2016

After an ordinary man is unwittingly drawn into a senseless murder, he ultimately finds himself convicted of a lack of compassion in this existential treatise on "the nakedness of man faced with the absurd." This existential novel by Albert Camus has been deconstructed through improvisation and shaped into a sensorially rich and socially daring adaptation by Brandon Walker and the members of The Seeing Place Theater Ensemble.
