About Outcry Reads
Outcry Reads is a yearly series of play readings. Outcry Theatre produces four readings of new works by local Dallas-Fort Worth playwrights. Local actors are cast, and an Outcry staff member directs the readings. The readings take place at the Outcry Theatre Rehearsal Location in Plano, Texas. The readings are free to attend, with limited seating for up to 20 audience members. A talkback follows the readings, moderated by the director, where the audience members and actors discuss the play with the playwright.
