Read Through is an opportunity to come into Northern Stage and explore a mix of playtexts over tea and biscuits.


Upcoming Sessions 


Perfect if you're interested in discovering exciting texts or wish to analyse old plays in a new way, Read Through is a fun and enriching way to tackle those plays you always wanted to, and explore new texts with professional directors, performers and writers.

Scripts ranging from a 21st century take on the financial crisis, all the way back to canonical classics, will be read over two sessions so you can get to the heart of the play, its characters, contexts and performance.


"I have really enjoyed the access this group has given me to contemporary plays, which has taken me out of my usual comfort zone. Zoe is an excellent facilitator and has skillfully aided us in reading and discussion of themes and staging issues.  It has increased my knowledge and I have come to Northern Stage to see many more productions than usual. I look forward to the next sessions." - Susan
