Second Generation Productions is proud to present…

In the Works: Experimentation and Play

We invite you to join us for 5 works-in progress.

Some of these plays are brand new.
In fact, they’re being written right now.
A few are in later stages of development but the artists
wanted to experiment with a few things to see how they fly.
But all these writers are standing out on the ledge
to tell new stories in new ways.
