Join Us for Saturday Series This Week:
Rag Doll in a Mad Dog's Mouth by Will Dunne
ABOUT THE SATURDAY SERIES:
Most Saturdays at 2:00pm, Chicago Dramatists presents a reading of a play-in-progress. Rehearsed and staged minimally, this program is devised for the playwright to hear their play through the bodies of actors, and to experience it in real-time with you, the audience. After each reading, a short discussion is moderated by a member of the artistic staff. Come be a part of new play development!
