Winter Studio Festival of Plays

January 19 and 27, 2019

IMPORTANT: Due to the Winter Storm, the Sunday, January 20th readings have been moved to Sunday January 27th - same show times. If you have tickets, you have been automatically moved to the new date. If you need to make changes, please call the box office at 413-637-3353.

The Winter Studio Festival of Plays is a weekend of play readings that gives us an opportunity to welcome people in out of the cold for refreshment and thoughtful entertainment. It also allows us to present some playwrights who represent important voices on the cultural landscape.

This year we present works that explore themes of immediate relevance, including immigration, adoption, addiction, and sexual abuse, and the ramification on individuals, families and communities.

Each reading is followed by a talk-back with the director and actors. 

Generously sponsored by Gretchen DeKalb.

Individual tickets are $25/Adult and $10/Student.
