Playwrights, theatre artists, and the general public convene in the Chicago Dramatists' theatre to witness the birth of a new work for the stage and to participate in its development by offering feedback to its playwright. The plays are always directed and rehearsed and are presented with minimal staging. After each reading, the audience members are invited to fill out written response sheets and to join in a post-reading discussion.

When a star struck middle-aged dreamer discovers that her long-time singing teacher has just returned from Manhattan, it can mean only one thing — he has found a producer for the Broadway musical they have created as her vehicle to stardom! Fay has one night to rehearse Sea Side Story, and be more ready than she has been in her whole life ever. (Good bye Kokomo, Indiana!)
