About Future Classics

CTH asserts that a "Future Classic" is a play of social significance that has the potential to stand the test of time. It tackles large-scale economic, political, or cultural issues. A Future Classic promotes courageous and open-minded examination of critical topics that are at the heart of society.

This month's Future Classic reading will feature World Classic by Nelson Diaz-Marcano (January 2017 Playwrights' Playground participant).
