All The World’s A Stage: A Free Play Reading Series

“All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts, his acts being seven ages.” -As You Like it, by William Shakespeare.

A free play reading series presented by Civic Rep and Vashon Center for the Arts at the Katherine L White Hall.
We invite you to join us to hear readings of classic modern and contemporary plays by notable playwrights. Watch scripts come to life on the stage in an informal setting without sets and costumes. Be part of the conversation between readers and the audience. All are welcome!

Henrik Ibsen’s
Adapted by Jon Robin Baitz
“It is a play about being damned and cornered, and you have to feel the pressures on Hedda,” writes playwright Jon Robin Baitz. Considered one of the great dramatic roles in theater, Hedda is the daughter of an aristocratic general who has just married a young, frugal and ordinary scholar. Feeling trapped in a compromised, doomed and pedantic existence, Hedda reaches for a fraught freedom.
At the center of making theatre is community.
We are gathering to share stories as a way of building community.
Civic Rep is a creative collective formed to make theatre that is honest, intimate and immediate. They endeavor to investigate all that is human with courage and compassion. Last year the company presented two plays by Tennessee Williams, A Streetcar Named Desire and The Two-Character Play, both at New City Theater in Seattle. For more info, please visit our website at:
