WordPlay Tuesday

Diversionary Theatre Lobby

Join us for WordPlay Tuesday, where local writers will hear short segments of their new works read out loud in a relaxed "open-mic" style setting in front of a friendly audience.

Actors - we want to remind you what a great opportunity this is to brush up on your cold reading skills! Arrive early - around 7:30pm - to hear the writers announce their casting needs, then volunteer for a part.

Anyone who is a fan of watching new works come to life is invited to join the conversation. The readings are FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.
