New Writing: Play Readings

During 2016, the Stephen Joseph Theatre began a new initiative as part of its remit to encourage and commission new writing. Play readings were introduced which featured professional actors giving a rehearsed reading of new work and a showcase for new writers for potential future productions at the Stephen Joseph Theatre.
