2008 STAGED READING PERFORMANCE SERIES
Committed to our vision of staging new works and re-imagined classics, we are back with a brand new line-up of dynamic plays. Beginning in March and continuing each month thereafter through August, Bricolage will showcase a play a month. The directors, actors and designers are given a week to rehearse their piece and will present, with book-in-hand, the staged reading performance for two evenings, a Sunday and Monday, in our space at 937 Liberty Avenue FIRST FLOOR. Each production is free and open to the public.
PICK YOUR PLAY
Just like last year, what makes this series unique is the audience participation. At the end of this six-month series, through an internet survey, we will ask YOU to choose which play you would most like to see fully realized. Whichever play receives the most enthusiastic response will become a future Bricolage production.
