South Asian Play Reading Group

What is the South Asian Play Reading Group?

Each session we will be reading a different play written by a writer of South Asian heritage. These will be new plays that are at different stages of development, older texts that haven’t been seen for a while and anything in between.

The format

The play will be read aloud by our willing script readers, and then as a whole group we will have a lively discussion about the text.

You can participate in the group as a reader, or as someone who is there to hear the text and share in the discussion. The group will be led by Tara Theatre’s Artistic Associate Beth Kapila.

Who we’re looking for

We’re looking for people to come and join the group! You don’t need any experience of theatre, or even South Asian theatre. Just an interest and an open mind to discovering something new.

We will let you know the script that we are reading in advance of the session once we have these confirmed.
