Join Azuka for a first look at some of the most exciting new voices and stories in theatre during our Spotlight Series Festival. Each year we bring the best and the brightest to the table to read and discuss new work we are considering for future seasons and we’re inviting you to be a part of the process. We actively produce our Spotlight Series plays (the terrible girls, Whisky Neat, Skin and Bone, 'Twas The Night) and your voice is critical in making this kind of exciting new work happen. Come, pull up a seat at our artistic table!
