Each Tuesday, the first 25 pages of two new plays will be read for an audience, who will vote for their favorite of the night. The two plays that accumulate the most votes at the end of the Summer run, will have a chance to be read in full and compete against each other in August. The winning script will be produced by Horse Trade as part of their 2015 season.
