Irons in the Fire

Irons in the Fire is Fault Line Theatre's year-round reading series of new plays in development.

Each public presentation of these works in progress is hosted in an environment that appropriately celebrates that particular new script, and is supported by a social event that brings the Downtown Theatre Community together in a fun and meaningful way. These reading events are the culmination of a few hours, a few weeks, or even a few months of rehearsal, depending on what each project requires. This format for both process and presentation is intentionally malleable, as we know every play and every playwright requires something a little different. We want to give artists we love a sandbox to play freely within. We also want to give you, our audience, the opportunity to join us in the process of creating new work. We hope you’ll join us!
