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 10 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.
