Theatre du Mississippi will present its first NewPlay MonDay event on Monday, June 30th. This series is a new venture for the organization. It will feature readings of original plays several times during the next year.
The first play is "Night Out There," by Richard Zinober. He was one of the Original shorts winners in 2013.
The event is free and will be held at 7:00 p.m. in the upstairs dining room of the Historic Masonic Theatre. Six to 10 audience members will be asked to read the script.
Submissions are also being accepted for the remaining events, scheduled for July 28, September 29, November 24, January 26 and March 30; they are all the last Mondays of the month.
To be considered, submissions must be original, full-length plays. They can be either a two-act play or a long (90 minutes or more) one-act play. One script will be chosen for each event.
