In the Touchstone Theatre
APT's popular play-reading series, Winter Words, is returning to the Touchstone - in-person for the first time since early 2020! Its arrival is thrilling, and just in time to celebrate new works for a new year.
A tradition for APT artists and guests alike, Winter Words provides room to explore stories that are new to us, with laser-focus on the language. The readings are one-night only, and tickets are in high-demand, so plan your visit, and get ready to be present with the actors on stage as they explore these new works with you.
Past Winter Words readings have included The Brothers Size by Tarell Alvin McCraney, The Moors by Jen Silverman and The River Bride by Marisela Treviño Orta - all later fully staged for our 2022 season.
We have an important request. Due to ongoing parking lot renovation (a project that is going to make you very happy come spring time!), parking for Winter Words will be extremely limited. We ask that you please carpool if at all possible. Thank you for your consideration, and we'll see you soon.
