Through this series, Court aims to venerate Black playwrights whose works have been historically excluded from the stage and to disrupt the idea of what we define as classic theatre today. This year’s Spotlight Reading Series is a celebration of Lorraine Hansberry and runs from July 31 – August 2. Learn more here.

Since 2016, Court’s Spotlight Reading Series aspires to redefine the canon of classic theatre by presenting readings of rarely produced plays by Black authors. Originally curated by Ron OJ Parson as a series of readings throughout the year, the Spotlight Reading Series is now a multi-day annual symposium curated by Court Theatre’s Director of Engagement, Kamilah Rashied. A list of past readings is available here.
