The Cape Cod Theatre Project brings together playwrights of new American plays with professional directors and actors—often straight from Broadway—for staged readings at Falmouth Academy each summer. This is an opportunity to experience the birth of an exciting new play before it moves on to major stages around the country.
Four plays will be developed in July at The Cape Cod Theatre Project, culminating in three performances of each play as staged readings on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings at 8 p.m. through the month of July at Falmouth Academy.
