Editor’s note: A long-time PS122 family member (previous box office manager and performer) asked me to help spread the word on this and I couldn’t be more excited to do so. Not only is this a prime example of collaboration from multiple playwrights stationed around the globe (which I love), but it’s also FREE with wine + cheese to enjoy at the end of it (which I doubly love). Thursday night date, anyone?
The Staged Reading of the Second Annual
Around-the-Globe Chain Play
