In partnership with Suffolk University we are proud to present a festival of readings of new plays written in immediate response to the current national climate. In the words of director and writer Wes Savick, "“We have taken this initiative because we believe that the role for theatre in the time of Trump is one that has to be created. We feel there is an urgency which must not be ignored. We welcome everyone to share this day with us.”

These new works, rough, raw and passionate, range from metaphoric explorations of the national zeitgeist, to head on, no holds barred satires ripped directly from yesterday's headlines.  Don't miss this bold, provocative, joyous, raucous celebration of theatre's power to engage the moment.
