This year, the Mendocino Theatre Company offers six readings of new works and old favorites on select Wednesday evenings at 7:00 pm throughout the season. Our next reading is GRANNY MAY and FRIENDS, a collection of six vignettes by local playwright Maureen Martin, which will be held on July 5th at 7pm.
The Reading Series gives new directors an opportunity to direct, and the minimal time commitment attracts a variety of performers who might not otherwise be available. Important works that may not otherwise be able to be produced on the Mainstage due to large casts, complicated production requirements, etc., can be experienced through the Reading Series. On occasion, popular readings may be selected as plays for the Mainstage.
