For nine months the MADlab team at Moving Arts has worked with five talented playwrights to help them create and curate a new play with the support and insight of actors, directors, respondents, and their fellow playwrights. Now Moving Arts is proud to present the 8th Annual First Look Reading Series to a vital component of the new play making process: the audience. Over one weekend we will present these five very different, engaging, challenging, and bold new plays. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
