Young Playwrights Showcase 

When: Aug. 31-Sept. 2, 8 p.m. 2017
Price: free admission, reservations required
Stray Dog Theatre's season is over, but the company is not yet finished presenting shows. The Young Playwrights Showcase comprises two new plays, and the staging of them is very much a collaborative process. The audience is invited to discuss what they've seen with the playwrights, offering honest and constructive criticism about what works, what needs development and what could be cut without harming the show. It's a prime opportunity for the writers to get feedback from people who aren't family or friends, and possible sneak peak at what might show up in a later Stray Dog season. This year's showcase features Robert M. Kapeller's First Chair, a drama that explores life after tragedy, and Meghan McLeroy's We Are Not Cured, which centers on two men who observe scenes of violence which they cannot forget. The Young Playwrights Showcase takes place at 8 p.m. Thursday to Saturday (August 31 to September 2) at the Tower Grove Abbey (2336 Tennessee Avenue; www.straydogtheatre.org). Admission is free, but reservations are requested.
