A favorite event since its very first appearance (circa 1999) Playwrights/Playreadings is the Geneva Theatre Guild’s nod to one of the critical, but oft forgotten elements of theatre: the playwright. We look for original scripts, with a running time of 30 minutes or under, and perform in intimate venues around Geneva. These dramatic readings allow for low-cost access for theatre patrons, and the intimate setting gives the audience a chance to interview players, directors, and sometimes the playwrights themselves about even the smallest details about the creative process and the end result.
