Play Readings

by anita

Play readings are held at various times during the year, both to pick future plays for production and also just for “social” reading, generally in the Tap Room at The Gaping Goose Public House, Selby Road, Garforth, starting at 7:30pm.

All Members, Friends, Potential Members or just anybody who is interested, are invited to come along to take part or to sit and listen.

There are no dates currently set for play readings, as we are starting rehearsals for our Autumn Production.
