About the event

The Test begins with our oldest ritual, dating.  Jimmy, a man/boy living in the past high school glory days of his youth, creates a test for his dates. He uses The Hideout, a local bar owned by his long-time friend and accomplice, Tim.  This is where we meet Ann, his latest subject.  One night, at the Hideout, the Test and Jimmy’s deceit is unveiled to Ann; she is left feeling humiliated and angry. When Jimmy discovers he’s been exposed, he becomes vindictive and violent.

The Studio's FIRST LOOK program is an opportunity for our audiences to participate in the development of new, imaginative theater — to interact with our playwrights, directors and actors to help us perfect a story before it is brought to the stage for a paying audience.

This series of live play readings is a standout favorite of our members and their friends from the general public. Participation is absolutely free to all who would like to join us. 

Be sure to stick around after the reading for a discussion with the playwright, director, actors and the audience. Your feedback is an important part of the play development process and will be greatly appreciated.
