All readings are presented free of charge as a service to the community, but reservations are requested and highly recommended; and donations are always appreciated. Please join us for an end of day gathering immediately following each day's second reading. Please note that the Bootleg Theater is hosting the readings in The Factory (2220 Beverly Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90057).

For eight months the MADlab team at Moving Arts has worked with four talented playwrights to help them create and curate a new play with the support and insight of dramaturges, actors, directors, and their fellow playwrights. Now Moving Arts is proud to present the 6th Annual First Look Reading Series to a vital component of the new play making process: the audience. Over two days we will present these four very different, engaging, challenging, and bold new plays. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

MADlab Dramaturges: Paige Vehlewald, Zury Ruiz, Allison Bergman, and Elyse Griffin

MADlab Producer: Dana Schwartz

More about the plays:

Marlow Wyatt: Robbin, from the Hood (Sat, Sep 21, 12PM)

A 21st century Robin Hood story: two teens looking for a way out of poverty are thrown into a world of wealth and privilege and find a way to "give back".

Meghan Brown: What Happened While Hero Was Dead (Sat, Sep 21, 2PM)

Being dead can change your life. After the virtuous Hero of Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing is accused of committing adultery, another false rumor spreads: the rumor of Hero's death. Hidden away in the maid's quarters, Hero is

desperate to clear her name so that things can return to normal... until she realizes that being dead might be the best thing that could have happened to her life.
