Parallel 45 Theatre and Crooked Tree Arts Center invite you to a series of free play readings featuring daring playwrights produced around the country and the world. Witness bold works written by notable playwrights and performed by some of our community's most talented actors and directors.
Pulitzer Prize finalist THE WOLVES chronicles the story of a high school girls' indoor soccer team going through their weekly Saturday morning pre-game soccer warmups. The girls deal with love, loss, and identity in ways that real teenagers do.
These intimate play readings will introduce important, heavily-produced plays to our northern Michigan audience for a night of rediscovery and discussion. In holding a series of free readings for the greater theatre-loving public, we hope to include multiple voices in important, on-going conversations around race, religion, gender-identity and more. Each reading concludes with a panel featuring artists and community members.
