Playhouse Potentials is a unique, artistic program which hosts a monthly script reading in the Cellar Theater, The Playhouse’s smaller performance venue for newer and more experimental original works. What is interesting and exciting about the program is that the script selections for each reading are made from open community submissions, cast with local actors, and read in front of a live audience. The Playhouse looks to the pool of Playhouse Potentials readings for inspiration in selecting future season productions.

Schedule of readings

  • August 28: Community Hearts ​by local playwrights Rebecca McCarty and Jay Brandon. Regular volunteers at a community center food bank who have become friends find their lives complicated when same­ sex marriage suddenly becomes legal.
  • October 30: Deborah ​by Houston playwright Elizabeth A. M. Keel
  • November 20: Dylan ​by Sidney Michaels. Alec Guinness starred on Broadway as the intemperate and often vulgar poet, Dylan Thomas. The play begins with his farewell to wife and Wales to tour the states, follows him to colleges, bars and bedrooms and finally to the ship that bore his body home, dead at 39.
  • December 18: When Everyone Leaves ​by local playwright Lindsey Van de Kirk. The play deals with the suicide of a beloved college professor soon after he has essentially been removed from his job. Everyone involved - current and former students, colleagues, administrators - pushes their agenda to make sure someone else is seen to be at fault.
