These plays are in various stages of completion, so be a part of observing the dramatic writing process. The reading runs 60 minutes with no intermission. There will be an audience talkback immediately following. All beer and wine is $1 for Playwrights' GYM readings. The Playwrights' GYM is Dobama Theatre's professional playwriting unit. GYM playwrights are given various resources to help further their work. These resources include rehearsal space, collaboration with a director to assist the playwright, marketing and public events supported by the theatre. The GYM's goal is to nurture new work in a safe environment and provide the "exercise" equipment needed to develop new plays by these Cleveland-area writers.
