Matchbox Readings to Run 12/1-9 at Crowded Fire TheaterMatchbox Readings to Run 12/1-9 at Crowded Fire Theater
by BWW News Desk (San Francisco)

(11/26/2014) - Crowded Fire Theater (CFT) announces the four featured playwrights and plays for the 2014 Matchbox Readings Series, public staged readings of plays in development. New plays by playwrights Geetha Reddy, Andrew Saito, MJ Kaufman, and Eugenie Chan in readings from December 1-9, 2014 at the Thick House Theater. Crowded Fire champions playwrights whose work offers a vital contribution to the American theater landscape with a commitment to diversifying the canon of contemporary plays. 'We believe art is always political,' says Crowded Fire Artistic Director Marissa Wolf, 'and that in order to move toward a more just society, theaters must offer a wider range of aesthetics and voices on our stages.' The Matchbox: Commissioning and Developing New Plays grew out of CFT's need to bolster playwrights' revision processes in order to strengthen the scripts before rehearsals for the professional productions began.
