BCT 5X5 Reading Series

Monday-Tuesday, Jan. 12-13

by

Before the opening night curtain rises, a play has gone through an evolution of rewrites, edits and more. In its 5X5 Reading Series, Boise Contemporary Theater offers an inside look at that process with readings of new works by five playwrights, followed by a discussion with people involved in the production. This season, BCT celebrates its 21st annual 5X5 with plays by incredible, contemporary playwrights Heidi Kraay, Sarah Ruhl, Hansol Jung, Denis Johnson and Samuel Hunter. New this year is 5X5 West, readings at Flying M Coffeegarage on Tuesdays--readings at BCT are on Mondays. Kraay's New Eden kicks off the series on Monday, Jan. 12 at BCT.
