NYC: Friday Night Footlights-Mined/Matter by Jeffrey K. Smith

February 28 2020 / 07:30 PM

The Dramatists Guild's Friday Night Footlights® series continues its series of play readings with Mined/Matter by Jeffrey K. Smith. This reading is free and open for all to attend.

Mined/Matter is a new sci-fi revenge comedy. Sector 37 is a strange and troubled place with continuous realtime elections, embodied targeted advertising, and tele-babysitting. But for Byron Reed, it's home. When he finally breaks out of prison to return there, he tries to put everything back to normal. There's only one problem: an invading galactic conqueror.

DG Footlights™ is a program, created and moderated by the Dramatists Guild, that connects dramatists with free space in which to hold a public reading of a new work that is currently in development. This initiative operates on a space-grant model: a representative from the Guild will arrange for a venue to donate space during allocated dates and times, and will ensure that the space is available for dramatists to use to present a self-produced reading to the public, with an optional feedback session following the reading. Attendance is always free and open to all.
