Read Through

Chairs in circle with scripts

Script reading group for over-60s 

Read Through is an opportunity to come into Northern Stage and explore a mix of playtexts over tea and a scone. Perfect if you're interested in discovering exciting texts or wish to analyse old plays in a new way, Read Through is a fun and enriching way to tackle those plays you always wanted to, and explore new texts with professional directors, performers and writers. Scripts from 21st century takes on the financial crisis all the way back to canonical classics will be read over two sessions so you can get to the heart of the play, it's characters, context and performance.
