About Outcry Reads
Outcry Reads is a new series of play readings. Outcry Theatre will produce four readings of new works by local DFW playwrights. Local actors will be cast, and an Outcry staff member will direct the readings. The readings will take place at the Outcry Theatre Rehearsal Location in Plano, Texas. The readings will be free to attend, with limited seating for up to 20 audience members. There will be a talkback following the readings, moderated by the director, where the audience members and actors can discuss the play with the playwright.
