ESPA*Drills 2013: Drown by David Hilder
Wednesday, August 21, 2013 from 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM (EDT)
New York, NY
ESPA*Drills is an annual new play development program providing professionally staged readings to ESPA playwrights. Each June, four plays are selected from dozens of submissions for workshopping at Primary Stages. They are then professionally cast, marketed, and presented before an audience of industry peers on an off-Broadway stage later that summer. ESPA*Drills provides an exclusive opportunity for ESPA writers to receive professional attention through the resources and support of Primary Stages.

A woman threw herself off a pier and never came up for air. Now she and her survivors must accept the help of others – even a talking clam.
Wednesday, August 21
All readings are open to the public, and will be held at 59E59 Theaters, located at 59 East 59th Street between Park and Madison Avenues.
