About the Series
Selected playwrights submit 10-12 pages of a new work in the early stages of development. Actors are cast on the spot and perform a cold reading, followed by a moderated audience feedback session. In addition to serving the development of new work, these readings give audiences a sneak peek into how new plays are created.
CTH asserts that a “Future Classic” is a play of social significance that has the potential to stand the test of time. It tackles large-scale economic, political, or cultural issues. A Future Classic promotes courageous and open-minded examination of controversial and critical topics that are at the heart of society.
CTH’s Revisited Classics are readings of original classic plays, or new adaptations of classics, as seen through the unique Classical Theatre of Harlem lens.
