We finished off not only the spring FreshWorks series at Profile this May, but we also did our last FreshWorks reading in Theater!Theatre!. For those of you who don't know, the building's theater spaces are going to be converted to other use over the summer.
The historic night was marked with a reading of Shane Bogus by local playwright Hunt Holman. We'd like to thank the actors very much for giving a lovely reading and for their generousity in donating their work towards new play development. We'd also like to thank our producing partner, Profile Theater, for helping to keep this program going, and finally, we'd like to thank the audience for coming and supporting new work, and helping Hunt learn more about his play.
If you weren't able to say everything you wanted to after the reading, or if you've had further thoughts or questions coalesce since we parted company, please do send them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll pass them along to the playwright.
Our first FreshWorks reading in the Profile space happened in September 2007 (after a year-an-a-half at Miracle Theatre). It's been a great space for us to do these readings. We will let you know where we will show up next to continue the FreshWorks Series, so please sign up for our e-mail list if you're not already on it!
The FreshWorks series will be taking some time off. Please watch this space for more information.
These readings take place at 7 p.m. on the 3rd Monday (usually) of every month. All of the readings are FREE and open to the public.
