May 6: Church of the New Play: Three Year Summer (Reading)
Prop Thtr presents new play reading by Amy Berryman
Church of The New Play is a weekly reading series featuring new work by local Chicago writers, devisers, and text generators of all performance forms. In each session, a new piece is read or presented followed by a talkback tailored to the artists' needs. This is an alternative to a script submission policy in that it gives creators' the space to present their work as it's meant to be experienced: live and out loud.

Church of the New Play presents...Three Year Summer by Amy Berryman and directed by Denise Yvette Serna
Synopsis: Set in 2002, in the early days of the internet, and the year before the fifth Harry Potter book is released, thirteen-year-old Tommie discovers the deep, dark world of online fan fiction. As Tommie watches her parents struggle to rescue their marriage, she grapples with being a teenager and her burgeoning sexuality, taking refuge in her writing, in an imaginary friend who looks a lot like Harry Potter, and fellow fanfic nerd, Pat.
