Description

The Atlanta Black Theatre presents incredible LIVE theatre for less than a movie!


Atlanta Black Theatre Festival's popular staged reading series features original works from the minds of some of the most prolific wordsmiths of our time! Writers have a rare opportunity to test or share original content for live stage and/or digital platforms (tv/film). Each reading gives patrons a glimpse into the development process and an opportunity to give feedback.

Spread the word. We must tell our stories!
