About Experiments Play Reading Series

For the past 18 years, the Experiments play reading series has provided a forum for talented playwrights to continue their creative process. The Monday evening readings at La MaMa give playwrights the opportunity to hear their developing plays read by professional actors and to receive valuable audience feedback. Experiments is a playwright ­driven service that is free to attend. Each season, it is organized around shifting themes and curators, which allows a larger, underserved theater community to experience a greater diversity of programming.
