Philadelphia Playwright Dave Ebersole Streams His Trilogy: THE CONFESSIONAL PLAYS

Playwright Dave Ebersole has teamed up with this diverse, talented group of actors from coast to coast, with the directorial and dramaturgical guidance of Bridget Dougherty, to bring virtual readings of these funny, queer, and optimistic plays.

"As a playwright you spend a lot of time waiting for other people to give you an opportunity to have your plays heard. Since COVID a lot of those walls have been removed. I realized I have a website, what's stopping me from presenting my own work without the permission of someone else? The answer is nothing."

All readings are pay what you decide.
