Reader's Theater

Ticket Reservations (pay what you wish)

Allens Lane Art Center is thrilled to present a new program for our 2020 season titled Reader's Theater. This program features local writers, directors and actors from our community  to present staged readings of exciting plays that we believe will speak to our audiences.

The readings take place in Allens Lane Theater and will be available to in-person audiences (if current CDC Guidelines allow) as well as a streamed version.  A short Talk Back will follow each reading where the audience will be asked to provide feedback on the work they just saw.

These readings are available with a pay-what-you-wish reservation.


Me & My Girlfriend with words

Me & My Girlfriend by Ngozi Thomas

Friday, November 6 and Saturday, November 7 @ 7:30pm

In person for a limited audience in accordance with CDC guidelines and Governors orders, and live streamed online.

About the Play:

Music mogul, Sean Boyd and his devoted girlfriend Ciara have been together for seven years. In the eyes of family and friends, they are the perfect couple, but the perfection in their "envious" relationship is starting to unravel. This original play full of drama, humor and relatable situations, written by local Playwright Ngozi Thomas, is not to be missed.
