The traditional Greeks, who gave us theatre and drama, referred to as the primary writers for the stage poets. In celebration of Nationwide Poetry Month (April), COLD READ SHORTs presents nationally acknowledged poets studying alternatives from their dramatic texts written for the stage. From verse dramas, opera libretti, translations of classical dramatic works, and diversifications, we have fun the poet as playwright and honor poetry as the unique language of the theatre.
The Nationwide Poetry Month version of COLD READ SHORTs is co-curated by affiliate creative director and playwright Kyle Bass and nationally famend poet Charles Martin.
