Core Artist Ensemble invites you to a brand-new season of FREE short play readings by some of our favorite emerging and established playwrights.
Our 5th annual Summer Readings season continues with 6 brand new short plays by:
Rob Ackerman, Jane Elias, Holly Hepp-Galvan, Steven Korbar, Michael C. O'Day, and Ron Palais
Inspired by Radiolab episodes: The Bad Show, Stochasticity, Translation, Deception, Weights and Measures, and Lose Lose
Last year we asked playwrights to take inspiration from their favorite podcast episodes to create new 10-minute plays written specifically for our annual summer reading series. This season, we're delving even deeper into the potential intersection of audio storytelling and stage performance by narrowing the focus of inspiration to a single podcast: Radiolab.
Core Artist Ensemble aspires to create work that explores the mysteries of the universe and the curiosities of the human experience, and Radiolab's non-fiction approach to these themes has consistently provoked our imaginations for fictional content and storytelling. If you're not already familiar with this fantastic podcast, join our mailing list or Facebook group to get links to all the episodes that inspired each week's plays.
