The third installment of the Unstaged Readings series, co-hosted by Intramural Theater and Beaubourg Theatre, performs THIS SUNDAY AT 7PM

In this alternative history, she chooses not to marry Willy, her first husband, who forced her to put pen to page and took credit for what she produced. The play had a staged reading at The Kraine Theater in New York City in March of 2019 as part of the Estrogenius Festival, and received further development through Estrogenius in October 2019. Vagabonds has also had readings at Dixon Place in New York City and the Writers Theatre of New Jersey. It has yet to be fully produced.

VIRTUAL BIG COUCH IMPROV
In this stay-at-home world, Big Couch puts a virtual face on an old favorite game. Eight talented improvisers will appear as characters on our "panel," and four other talented performers will play themselves as "contestants." Our fun host gives them prompts. The more matches the contestants get from the panel for each prompt, the more they score. The winner is you - the audience! Because this will be funny, unexpected stuff.
