  • The Word at the Road

    As part of our mission to foster the development of new plays, The Road hosts readings on Mondays at 8pm that are open to the public and tickets are pay what you can. Readings are followed by a talkback with the playwright (if available). Check back often for new additions to the lineup and make sure to follow us for updates and reminders.

    • Mar. 29th

      Space Available

      Please join us on Monday, March 29th, 2020 at 7 PM SPT/10 PM EST for a virtual reading of Jennie Webb’s Space Available directed by Mia Y. Anderson. This reading will be presented on our YouTube channel for a suggested donation of $15.

      This is the story of Jane, who’s managed to survive an absurd litany of profound misfortunes in a world where the words “womanhood” and “motherhood” are used interchangeably. But when she comes face to face with a surreal future that no one should have to live with, she takes a closer look at what it means to have options. Space Available is a play about a woman’s place and what (& who) we let define us.

      Playwright: Jennie Webb

      Director: Mia Y. Anderson

      Featuring: Cherish Monique Duke, Audrey Cain, Janet Chamberlain, Ruman Kazi, and Krishna Smitha.
