PLAY READINGS

Play readings are held regularly at Manor Gardens and are great opportunities for members and non-members alike to relax in friendly company and read through a play that we are thinking of producing in the future or simply want to read!

There is no compulsion to read any of the parts, if you just want to listen, but it is a fun chance to read and enjoy parts that you wouldn't be able to audition for, because of age, gender or other reasons!
