“Why a table read?”
You've finished your play. You've sent it out to friends and family. You've carefully considered their notes and revised the play accordingly. Now it's time for the table read.
"The what, now?"
The table read is an essential part of script development. After all, how do you know the thing works until you've heard it read out loud?
The Knack Theatre will cast and produce a table read of your script with a live audience, and will host a Roundtable discussion afterward where you can receive feedback from audience members as well as industry professionals.
Please note this is a cold read. The actors are given the script a week in advance but there are no rehearsals before the actual event. The Roundtable is not a small-scale show. Its purpose is for the writer to hear the dialogue of their script come to life and to get feedback from industry professionals and audience members alike.
Upon booking, you agree that The Knack Theatre will take care of all efforts regarding venue booking, casting, ticketing, and marketing (including the design of promotional materials) of the event.
