Quarantine Zoom Script Readings

As the world headed into the 3rd month of the Covid-19 Quarantine, everyone was looking for ways to bring back some sense of normalcy.  After speaking with other artists who were hungry for community, we teamed up with Iowa City based artist Noel VanDenBosch and began our Quarantine Play Reading group.  

This group has reconnected some of the artistic community and helps to continue our education as each week we select a couple scripts, cast them, and read them online through Zoom. Anyone not reading is encouraged to tune in to listen and be a part of the post reading discussion.

Connecting with other people is vital for maintaining not just artistic skills, but human sanity and will to live.  50/50 has been delighted to host these readings, giving people a chance to connect and artists a chance to play.

Get it....PLAY?

Below are the play titles we have read since May 14th, 2020.
