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 They Came
By Resident Playwright MT Cozzola
Directed by Jeremy Aluma
In When They Came, the citizens of a typical American town recover from the loss of a group of aliens who had come to them in need of a new home. The citizens defend their actions, interrogate each other, and reveal their deepest hopes and fears as they seek to explain, as a community, how their hospitable intentions resulted in disaster.
This event is FREE ($7 suggested donation at the door) and open to the public.
