Playwrights Foundation and the National Center for New Plays at Stanford present the Winter/Spring Rough Readings Series, the 10th annual monthly developmental showcase of brand new work in its early draft form. Bringing playwrights and theatergoers together in an intimate setting each month to showcase work that is still at a very early stage of development. Playwrights Foundation Artistic Director Amy Mueller remarks, “The Rough Readings Series has been an important springboard for so many powerful projects. Katori Hall’s The Mountaintop got one of its very early readings on the series, for example. It’s a place where the writers can work out something difficult, but crucially important.”

In The Lady Onstage playwright Erin Bregmanon takes us into the psyche Olga Knipper, leading actress of the Moscow Art Theater in Chekhov’s day, and gives us an inside perspective on the radical choices artists make in the name of Art and Love at the moment when theater changed forever.
