Alley All New Reading Series
The Alley All New Reading Series, presented throughout the season, provides a key developmental step for playwrights while allowing Houston audiences to discover exciting new plays before they receive world premiere productions.
Readings play a major role in the development of new work, enabling artists to hear their writing out loud in front of an audience. Following a limited rehearsal period, actors perform at music stands allowing the audience to hear the dialogue while imagining the production through spoken stage directions.
