Join us for a Sneak Preview & Reading of a Work-in-Progress!
Join us for a reading of a work-in-progress! Here's a chance to see the beginnings of a new theatrical work for the stage, commissioned by the UR International Theatre Program under its 2019-20 Natalie Hurst '74 New Voice Initiative, in its first incarnation. Playwright Sam Chanse has been in residence during the Fall semester working on a draft of a new play that will premiere next semester (Spring 2020) with student actors and URITP Artistic Director, Nigel Maister. We invite you to come and see what Sam and our students have been up to and be part of a dialogue that will bring a new work into the American theatrical mainstream.
When: Friday & Saturday, December 6 & 7 at 7pm
Where: Todd Theatre (Todd Union, above the Post Office)
