Forward Theater Company is proud to give theater professionals throughout southern Wisconsin an artistic home.
To that end, each season the company collaborates with local playwrights to develop and showcase new work. In 2013-2014, in addition to our regular season of three mainstage plays, FTC will host two staged readings of original plays – one chosen by FTC’s literary committee, and one winner of the Wisconsin Wrights New Play Project, a program administered by the UW-Madison Division of Continuing Studies. This year, Forward Theater will present This Prison Where I Live by Angela Iannone on Saturday, March 1st, and Truth by James DeVita on Saturday, May 3rd.
Please join us for these world premiere readings and extended talkbacks with the authors and creative teams. Ask questions of the playwrights, share your opinions of the works in progress, and watch new plays take shape before your eyes.
"Just know that with your presence tonight, you play a role in this process. Your voices will echo in the play’s dialogue and your suggestions will shape the story."
— Sam White, author of Oatesland, commenting on his 2012 staged reading with Forward Theater
