Proposing a Play for Discussion

We welcome proposals for plays to discuss. It does not have to be a play currently playing in the area, although we prefer to see the play eventually.

To propose a play:

1. Read it.
2. Check its availability.
3. Plan to present, or find someone else to present, an introduction of the playwright at our meeting.
4. Send your proposal to Mark Gruenberg.
