During this series, The Workshop Theater presents sit-down readings of new and revisited scripts by company playwrights, or projects initiated by company artists, generally followed by a moderated dramaturgical discussion. Unless otherwise noted on the schedule, Sunday readings begin at 6pm in the Jewel Box, and are Free and Open to the Public. This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department Of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
