With generous support from the Kaplan Foundation, Cotuit Center for the Arts announces a new collaboration designed to workshop four original plays by four local playwrights over the course of one year.  Theater partners include Cotuit Center for the Arts, Harwich Junior Theatre, Provincetown Theater, and Woods Hole Theater Company.

Each work will be presented in staged readings four times, once each season over the course of a year, in four venues from the upper Cape to the lower Cape, reaching four different audiences.  The partners each invited a local playwright and asked that they pen a new full length play for up to six actors. Readings will take place in the four theaters simultaneously, the first with each playwright in the “home” of their presenter, then rotating between the four venues.

Featured playwrights are Bronwen Prosser (Cotuit Center for the Arts), Susan Kosoff (Harwich Junior Theatre),  Candace Perry (Provincetown Theater) and Joe Richards (Woods Hole Theater Company).  The program is funded by generous support from the Kaplan Foundation.

Admission is free.
