Each season, Parallel 45 Theatre invites audiences to a series of play-readings featuring the work of daring playwrights produced across the country and around the world. These plays allow us to include multiple voices in important, ongoing conversations around race, religion, gender-identity, and more. Each reading concludes with a panel featuring artists and community members.
Making up for lost pandemic time, this year’s readings will take place over the course of one day on the lawn of Parallel 45 Theatre’s outdoor performance space at Civic Center Park Amphitheatre, creating a one-day festival of dazzling theatrical material, in-depth conversations, and safe community gathering opportunities. The 2021 playwrights are all award-winning alumni of the MITTEN Lab: Monet Hurst-Mendoza, Liz Morgan, and Andrew Rincón. The reading series’ directors hail from across the United States; Katherine M. Carter, Khalia Davis, and Jesse Jou will bring these readings alive in collaboration with the Parallel 45 Theatre actors you know and love.
