The Rough Readings are a series of new plays brought to the Bay Area.  All are performed as concert readings, directed and acted out by some of the Bay Area's top professional theater artists and attended by patrons like you.  Playwrights Foundation partners with The Center For New Plays at Stanford University and Bay Area theaters to provide playwrights an opportunity to hear the drafts of their new plays in front of an audience.  

The Rough Reading experience is a valuable rewriting and development process for many playwrights and an opportunity for theatre enthusiasts to catch a glimpse of the next big thing!
 Funding for the Rough Reading series comes from the National Center for New Plays, The San Francisco Foundation, Grants for the Arts, The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the RHE Charitable Foundation and generous individuals like yourself. Your support allows Playwrights Foundation to continue the discovery and development opportunites for local and national playwrights.
