Read Not Dead

The Read Not Dead ground rules are simple. Actors are given the play on a Sunday morning and present it, script in hand, to an audience later that afternoon. What follows is a shared spirit of adventure and excitement for actors and audiences alike who sense that they might be uncovering a neglected gem.
