The NOLA Project’s ROUGH DRAUGHTS is a monthly new play reading series that will take place on the last Monday of every month at NOLA Brewing Company at 3001 Tchoupitoulas St. Admission to the readings is FREE, though donations are always welcome 🙂 Come out and hear brand new plays that we are considering for production next season and offer us some friendly feedback about what you hear! The idea is to promote the reading and eventual production of new plays, give a voice to talented theatre writers, and create a more familial bond between the NOLA Project family of company members and patrons. Check back frequently as we will update this page with titles and locations as they are decided!
