MRT celebrates the commissioning of two of the country’s most adventuresome playwrights, Trista Baldwin and Vichet Chum, with the launch of a new reading series, MRT’s FIRST LOOK.

The initial three readings will be free and presented over Zoom. Some readings will include the entire play; some, portions of the play. The readings will also be available on the MRT website for a few additional days. An RSVP is required via the web page for each show, see below. Those who RSVP will be emailed the access information for Zoom the day before the reading.

Courtney Sale, the Nancy L. Donahue Artistic Director, said, “With our mission of producing remarkable new work, we are delighted this fall to support the development of three sublime writers: Trista Baldwin, Vichet Chum, and Steven Dietz. MRT audiences will have the opportunity to hear their works in progress, including two commissioned by MRT, and learn more about the playwrights and connect with a dynamo team of artists. These writers possess boundless creativity, sturdy craft, and tremendous heart. I am excited for all of us to spend more time in their words and worlds."
