terraNOVA Collective’s Groundworks: New Play Series
at the New Ohio during G$M!

New Georges is THRILLED to sponsor terraNOVA Collective’s Groundworks during our time at the New Ohio.  We’re great admirers of terraNOVA and this series, which features members of their awesome Groundbreakers Playwrights Program.  Kind of a great batch of readings, frankly, and not just cause our affiliated artists Anna Ziegler, Jen Silverman, Jessi D. Hill and Lynn Rosen (who’ll get to hear her new play on the set of her other play!) are involved.  Check it out!
