virtual reading series with eye for future production

 

LOS ANGELES (July 13, 2020) — Submit your play! The Latino Theater Company is hosting the Unmasking New Works Online Reading Series to be held on its online platforms this fall. All playwrights based in Los Angeles are eligible for consideration to participate in the company’s third annual professional readings series that shines a spotlight on L.A.’s most exciting voices.
