13_0117-WIL_poster_web

Are you around this weekend and looking for something new and innovative to see?  Well, you’re in luck.  While your friends tour Boston and NYC, you can tour the stories of your peers in the Undergraduate portion of “Writing is Live.”  This weekend at the Rites and Reason Theatre, you can see readings of new plays by students studying writing for performance.

“Writing is Live” aims to put on theater works in progress. Their goal is to experiment with what writing means in terms of creating “live” theater.  This weekend, there will be a wide range of play readings dealing with different subjects, forms, and themes. Chances are you will come out with a new opinion of what a “performance” can be.  Check out the schedule after the jump.
