Join Seattle Rep's monthly Kilroys Club playreading group for discussions of new, unpublished plays. Plays will be sourced from the Kilroys List, a curated selection of new plays by women, trans, and non-binary playwrights. The Kilroys Club will also have an additional focus on playwrights of color.

I deeply appreciate the opportunity to read new plays and share perspectives with others in an informal setting.

Registration Information

Registration Fee

Register below for individual scripts and meeting dates.

Individual Event Registration

Adults: $10
Students: $5

This registration fee goes toward compensating the playwrights for access to their unpublished scripts. If you have questions or if you are unable to pay for registration at this time, you can request a waiver for the registration fee by contacting Nabra Nelson.

How to Participate

Scripts will be emailed to all registrants for reading before the group meets for a free-flowing discussion of each play. Seattle Rep staff will delve into the season planning process using these works as examples and provide insight on the production process from page to stage.

This is not a public play reading. Instead, like a book club, this is a chance for you to gain access to new scripts, read them on your own, and discuss them with other theater enthusiasts and Seattle Rep artistic staff.

Accommodations

All Kilroys Club discussion sessions will be closed captioned. To request additional accommodations, contact Nabra Nelson.

  • Pure Native

    by Vickie Ramirez

    Date: September 18 at 11 a.m. PT

    Brewster's back after almost a decade and things have changed. He's recovered from his addictions and works for a large Corporate Food Company in their bottled water division. Brewster wants to share his success with the people of his Rez and believes a bottled water factory built on tribal land, marketing "Pure Native, waters from the heart of NDN Country," will solve their problems. To his old love Connie, the idea is a betrayal of everything the Haudenosaunee stand for. As Brewster works hard to win over the Council and Tribal Members, Connie fights to protect tradition and culture. Who will win?
