Sophie's Sweet 16
by Chima Chikazunga

Kierra and Dominique are an engaged couple who want to take their relationship to the next level, but when Kierra decides to move in with her ailing grandmother Sophie, plans to bring a child into the world are suddenly placed on hold. Sophie's Sweet 16 is about 2 lost souls, who unexpectedly confide in eachother while trying to find comfort rather than a home.

Home baked treats & wine available, BYOB welcome!

What is R&D?:
...Ours stands for Reading & Drinking!...
R&D is a free, informal gathering of artists invited to have a (totally optional) drink or two while volunteer performers read new works/ works-in-progress by independent playwrights. Past R&D pieces have ranged from short plays, one-acts, full lengths, to musical excerpts. Our free developmental reading series creates a laid-back environment for hearing pieces aloud while offering an opportunity for feedback.

Are you a playwright with a new/developing piece you wanna hear out loud (but aren't trying to drain your resources $$$ to put up a reading on your own)? Let us do it! Submit your works to info@step1theatreproject.org for consideration at our Spring R&D session. All lengths and genres accepted, submissions are on a rolling basis.

In the spirit of Artists Supporting Artists, R&D developmental readings are always free to attend.

YEP, the year end is just around the corner!

Are you over 2018?
Was it great and you're ready for the more in the new year?
Was it the worst and you're ready for something different in the new year?
(Somewhere in between??)

 

Whether the end of 2018 gives you feelings of joy and excitement, existential anguish or fierce determination, come watch artists perform what's on their minds for the last year of the '10s decade! Join us in the Basement @ the Delancey for short performance acts by local artists as they perform what matters to them next year and help us fundraise for our 4th season!
