Williamstown Theatre Festival
Fresh Takes: Play Reading Series- Special Event- Summer 2017
Curated by WAM Theatre’s Artistic Associate Molly Clancy, Fresh Takes will give a stage to ground-breaking works – which have been successfully presented elsewhere but are new to our Berkshire audiences – that tell women’s stories. Featuring local professional actors and directors, the series explores the work of provocative contemporary voices. The series includes a post-reading discussion and will encourage feedback on which plays audience members would like to see WAM Theatre produce.
In another exciting collaboration for WAM’s 2017 Season, Williamstown Theatre Festival will be hosting a WAM Theatre Fresh Takes play reading in summer 2017 – stay tuned for more details.
Mandy Greenfield, Artistic Director of Williamstown Theatre Festival said, “We are thrilled to host Kristen van Ginhoven and WAM for a reading at the Festival this summer. We look forward to supporting her wonderful work to benefit women and girls.”
Further information about the date, time and specific location of this reading will be forthcoming.
