Each summer at the end of July, Hollins presents a three-day event showcasing ten readings of student work from the Playwright’s Lab at Hollins. These readings are minimally staged for the general public and close to a dozen guest professional responders from all over the globe attend. This year’s guest responders include publishers, arts administrators, playwrights, actors, directors, and even a producer of Broadway musicals! These guest responders are coming from as far away as Los Angeles and as close as downtown Roanoke. Get acquainted with these plays and playwrights before they are famous, and engage in a conversation about theatre with Hollins students, faculty, and some established theatre professionals. All readings are free and open to the general public.
July 23: 11 a.m., 2 p.m., 4 p.m., and 8 p.m.
