Staged Readings

Now in its 17th year, IATI Theater’s play development program continues the tradition of expanding the possibilities of playwriting.  Cimientos 2017 is composed of a lineup of playwrights that carry on the sacred task of pushing the envelope and exploring the boundless potential of contemporary dramaturgy.  From historical fantasy to arcane magical realism, this year’s play readings will showcase how the world can be transformed and enhanced through what today's drama can achieve.
