Staged Readings

In its 16th season, IATI’s Play Reading Series spotlights a curation of national and cross-continental contemporary writers.  From February to June 2016, Cimientos 2016 hosts 10 play readings that fuel the genesis of theater: the playwright.  “All plays are not created equal” and our avant-garde is a solemn cry into what theater can and should do today.

Play readings will include a talkback with the playwright, director, actors and guests to focuses on audience reaction and constructive feedback to bring the new work closer to a fully-realized production.
