Please join us this summer for our New Works Staged Reading Series. Every weekend from July 14 through August 13, B8 will celebrate local playwrights and their works via staged readings.  This is a great opportunity to be one of the first to hear and respond to a new work and perhaps even have a say in what might become part of a future B8 season.

Readings will be held on Friday and Saturdays at 8:00pm, and Sundays at 2:00pm.  All tickets are $10 and are available at the door, or advance tickets are available on the Brown Paper Tickets links seen below:

NEXT UP! Our new 2017-18 Season

Almost, Maine

Written by John Cariani
Directed by JanLee Marshall 
October 12 – 28, 2017

On a cold, clear, moonless night in the middle of winter, all is not quite what is seems in the remote, mythical town of Almost, Maine. As the Northern Lights hover in the star-filled sky above, Almost's residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend - almost - in this delightful midwinter night's dream. Tickets coming soon...
