Monday Night Drama Series

Time to add more drama to your Monday nights! The Saturday Series, Dramatists’ longest-running program, has moved to Monday nights. This off-night for the theatre industry allows  greater access to in-demand directors, actors, artistic directors, and producers PLUS attracts newer audiences already primed to attend evening performances over afternoons.

The Monday Night Drama Series events will consist of public readings of plays-in-progress from our Resident Playwrights or Alumni as well as other exciting additions, panel discussions, fireside chats with visiting artists, and more! 

Tickets are only $10 or pay what you can at the door*! Upgrade to a $25 ticket and receive a signed copy of that night's script.

NEXT MONDAY NIGHT DRAMA


Throwaway Kids by Isaac Gomez, Resident Playwright

The sun is hot hot hot as the self-proclaimed Throwaway Kids hop trains and ride Texas skies, bouncing city to city, finding home wherever they lie their heads. But when newcomer Genesis joins this ragtag group of homeless youth, their entire existence is shaken as they are forced to reconcile with the haunted pasts that keep them there. Throwaway Kids is an exploration of power and control when adults aren’t around to exercise it.

Upcoming events

*Ticket revenue only covers 10% of the total cost for the Monday Night Series so please consider contributing what you can to help new work get to the stage.
