Season Two of the Seven Deadly WINKS Series Continues: "Pride"

Season two of the WINKS Series continues this month!
Wide Eyed Productions is hosting our second installment of the WINKS Reading Series, but this time with a twist! We will be focusing exclusively on original plays by local NYC playwrights featuring the Seven Deadly Sins. Each month you’ll see a 20-minute segment from each play, and then vote on your favorite. The winner will be invited to submit the full text and given a full staged reading.
(More details below.)
Come join us the last Thursday of the month
from February to August!

This season predicates future seasons by workshopping and reading plays to excite and invigorate theatergoers and the production company alike. Through a series of readings open to the public, Wide Eyed Productions aims to strike a chord within ourselves and the community.

Each month will feature a 20-minute segment from three original works by three different writers which are related to, or inspired by, that month’s “sin.” At the end of each night, the audience will be invited to select their favorite of the evening by casting an anonymous ballot. The majority favorite will be named a semifinalist and will be invited to submit a full text to Wide Eyed Productions’ Board for consideration for our final round.

Two overall finalists will be chosen and given a full staged reading of their plays at the end of the WINKS series, and one winning text will be chosen based on audience and board votes. This winning text will then be submitted to the New York International Fringe Festival for production.

Can’t make it this month, but still want to support?
