Since 2016, Court’s Spotlight Reading Series aspires to redefine—and ultimately expand—the canon of classic theatre by presenting readings of rarely produced plays by authors of color. Originally curated by Ron OJ Parson as a series of readings throughout the year, this year’s Spotlight Reading Series is curated by Court Theatre’s Director of Engagement, Kamilah Rashied, as a three-day event celebrating playwright Sonia Sanchez. The Spotlight Reading Series will be directed by Aaron Mays

The Spotlight Reading Series will run March 15 – 17, 2023 from 6:00pm – 8:30pm at the Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts, 915 E 60th Street. Each day will feature the reading of a play by Sonia Sanchez and a post-show conversation. All events as part of this year’s Spotlight Reading Series are free and open to the public, and reservations are required.

The Spotlight Reading Series aims to introduce more Chicagoans to the authors and their work, which are rarely produced. Court builds community connections beyond our mainstage productions with neighborhood-based cultural institutions, nonprofits, and civic groups who often host our readings. A list of past readings is available here.

The Spotlight Reading Series is sponsored by the Joyce Foundation, the Poetry Foundation, and Allstate.
