First Draft
Reading Series

First Draft, Chicago Dramatists bi-Monthly meetings of Network Members, stands as a core essential of the Network Playwright Program. Members meet on the second and fourth Monday of every month, where they read and critique one another’s work in a safe, peer-to-peer environment, guided by a theater professional. Each session, a new full-length play from a member is read. Readings are free and open to the public. Due to COVID-19, we have moved all events to Zoom, an online platform.
