Soundings Reading Series

The Soundings Reading Series is designed to test a fairly well-developed play in front of an audience. Authors have five hours of rehearsal with professional actors and a director, and a public reading of the play with guided feedback from the audience.  All readings are followed by a discussion with the author, director, and Artistic Director John Pietrowski.

These readings permit Writers Theatre to connect with its community of patrons and artists to:

  • gain audience insight into the play
  • continue the exposure of the audience to the creative process
  • give our audience experiences with diverse narrative forms.

Writers Theatre presents around 14 of these readings per year. Plays presented will be a mix of new submissions and continued relationships with writers whose work has been developed at WTNJ in the past.
