SOUNDINGS Reading Series with ten new plays for 2017


A New Year Brings New Plays to Madison, NJ!



Happy New Year! We are kicking off the new year and our 2017 season with ten new plays in  our annual SOUNDINGS Reading Series! This year, SOUNDINGS returns to Madison and will be held at the Dreyfuss Theatre on the Madison campus of Fairleigh Dickinson University on    the nights of January 4-8 and 11-15 at 7 PM.

SOUNDINGS combines new plays from some of the best playwrights in the country with professional actors and directors, allowing you to experience powerful new dramas and smart, vibrant comedies here at home. Each reading is followed by an audience discussion with the playwright, director, and Artistic Director, John Pietrowski, giving you a chance to be a part of the artistic process and help shape the work through your feedback and shared insights.

This year’s crop of plays features a number of New Jersey playwrights, including Lia Romeo’s “The Grand Tour,” David Lee White’s “The Festial Quartet,” and Ben V. Marshall’s “Incident at Willow Creek.” The series will also include Kevin Caruso’s “The Shook Ones,” a screenplay, and Henry Meyerson’s The Activist. Both Mr. Caruso and Mr. Meyerson are recipients of the New Jersey State Council on the Arts’ 2015 Literary Artist Fellowship in Playwriting.
