A look inside our Literary Department & Fridays @ 3!

Every Friday, the Literary Department puts together the Fridays @ 3 series, where actors come together at 10AM to rehearse for a reading of a new play in development that day at 3, all for a recommended donation of $5. We sat with the Literary Department to learn more about Fridays @ 3, and see a bit of what other fun things are going on in their department!

Dramaturgical image research they've provided for shows this season:

A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE: New Orleans, 1947. This picture includes several images mentioned in the play. Note the Cemeteries line streetcar on the right; in the background you can see the Loews Theatre and an ad for Jax beer.

THREE HOTELS: "Have" and "Have Not" murals for Durban, South Africa.

ONE SLIGHT HITCH: Interior of Cincinnati Suburban House vs. Interior of East Village Apartment.

A DOLL'S HOUSE: Betty Hennings as Nora in the first production of A DOLL'S HOUSE.
