Theatre East is committed to discovering new vivid theatrical works and celebrating all forms of theatre. The Neighborhood Reading Series helps us do just that while fostering relationships with playwrights and their work. The Neighborhood Reading Series allows us to expand our horizons even further because it is outside the confines of a full production. In addition, it provides a platform for discussion and community by celebrating plays you may have heard of along with some that might be a bit more obscure or even brand new. Since the readings are free and open to the public, it also aids us in our dedication to the ideal that theatre is not a luxury but should be accessible to everyone, no matter one's economic or social status.
Theatre East Advances The Dialogue of the Shared Human Experience through works that utilize Simple Storytelling, Providing Our community With A Platform to Deepen Its Understanding of themselves, each other and the world we share.
