Six readings of new and classic plays – all offering insight into environmental issues faced by the Quad Cities and other communities along the Mississippi River – will be presented in February, March and April.
The "RiverStages" Play Reading Series is being presented as part of a partnership between River Action and the Quad City Theatre Workshop (QCTW), and are made possible thanks to the generous support from the Iowa Arts Council (a division of the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs) and the National Endowment for the Arts.
Each reading also will feature a panelist who will lead discussions about the plays’ relevance to local issues.
The series begins Feb. 4 at the Figge Art Museum with a reading of "Inheritors," a play written by Davenport native and Pulitzer Prize-winner Susan Glaspell. The performance will begin at 7 p.m.
