The 13th Annual New Play Reading Festival

Boston Court’s New Play Reading Festival presents readings of exciting new works in progress that are in keeping with Boston Court’s mission, which urges artists to fearlessly and passionately pursue their unique voice and vision. Play selection encompasses a wide variety of genres, with a special emphasis on works, which are inherently theatrical, textually rich, and visually arresting.

Playwright's Panel Discussion
Writing the Unusual: Representing the Known World in Unfamiliar WaysMonday, July 24, 2017 @ 7pm

Dogs talking to strangers. Teenagers taking phone selfies in the 1940s. The world of theater does not always look like the world as we know it. While some plays seek to hold the mirror up to nature, many plays look beyond the realistic for the imaginative and the surreal. What kinds of storytelling are uniquely available to theater, and what artistic value might we find outside of the naturalistic? What happens when we call attention to, rather than hide, the artifice of representation? Join the conversation with a panel of our New Play Reading Festival playwrights, as they discuss the relationship between realism and performance in their own work. Will include an audience Q&A.
