About Molly Kirschner

Molly Kirschner is a playwright and poet. In the spring of 2014, she was selected for Horizon Theatre’s New South Young Playwrights Contest and Festival, where she wrote and developed her short play The Suit, which was produced in 2015 as part of the March Short Play Lab at Midtown International Theatre Festival in Manhattan. Her full-length play VAGABONDS had a reading at Dixon Place in New York City in August of 2016. Kirschner’s first book of poems, Hard Proof,  was released in July of 2015 from Red Mountain Press, and was the number one bestselling book from Small Press Distribution in the month of June. Her second collection, Notes For Further Research, is forthcoming from Red Mountain Press. Kirschner’s poems have appeared in numerous journals, as well as in Italian translation. When she is not writing poetry, plays, or third-person autobiographies, she enjoys taking walks and defending her decision not to own a television to her eleven-year-old neighbor, Daniel.

About the Soundings Reading Series

About The Soundings Reading Series

The Soundings Reading Series is designed to test fairly well-developed plays 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.

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

  1. Gain audience insight into the play
  2. Continue the exposure of the audience to the creative process
  3. 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.
