Staged Readings

Cimientos spotlights a curation of national and cross-continental contemporary writers. From November of 2017 to February of 2018, 10 playwrights converged to polish and perfect each other’s’ plays. From February to June 2018, Cimientos 2018 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 include a talkback with the playwright, director, actors and guests that focuses on audience reaction and constructive feedback–bringing the new work closer to a fully realized production.

These are the Remaining Play Readings for Cimientos 2018!
