ReDiscovery Readings

The ReDiscovery Series investigates rarely-produced classics in one-night-only staged readings with guest artists, scholars and D.C.’s most talented actors. Since 1993, the Shakespeare Theatre Company has staged more 70 plays as part of its ReDiscovery Series, with many readings leading to fully-produced mainstage proudctions. In recent years, the series has led directly to newly commissioned adaptations by David Ives of French verse comedy.
