Forward Theater Company is proud to give theater professionals throughout southern Wisconsin an artistic home.
To that end, each season the company collaborates with local playwrights to develop and showcase new work. In 2013-2014, in addition to our regular season of three mainstage plays, FTC will host two staged readings of original plays. This year, Forward Theater will present This Prison Where I Live by Angela Iannone on Saturday, March 1st, and Babylon by James DeVita on Saturday, May 3rd.
Please join us for these world premiere readings and extended talkbacks with the authors and creative teams. Ask questions of the playwrights, share your opinions of the works in progress, and watch new plays take shape before your eyes.
