Our script-in-hand reading series celebrates its 25th anniversary this year with a spotlight on Nathan Field, actor and writer and Elizabethan rebel. Field’s first ever play opened our first season of Read Not Dead in 1995, and his final play, The Fatal Dowry, will end his year’s series.

The Read Not Dead ground rules are simple. Actors rehearse the play once and present it, script in hand, to an audience later that day.
The performances are instinctive, adrenaline driven and inventive.
Actors and audiences alike share in the excitement of reviving these forgotten plays that definitely deserve to be Read Not Dead.
