Ok, actually we'll be reading eight of the plays submitted for "Secrets".
Every year Ixion puts out a call for short plays around a particular theme with the intent of performing a select group of those plays in the final slot of our production season. Last September we received over 100 submissions inspired by the theme, Secrets. After a selection process, made extremely difficult by so many great submissions, we've chosen eight for further development.
That's where you come in.
We will be holding two staged readings to explore these eight scripts and seek audience feedback. With your and the director's input, we will pass the comments on to the writers and prepare these scripts for full performance in May.
The first reading is Monday, January 11th from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the Capital Area District Library auditorium, 401 S. Capitol, Lansing, MI. The readings are free to attend and we look forward to hearing your comments and reactions.
