Acclaimed theater director Kayla Minton Kaufman and talented local actors perform a dramatic reading of Chronic, a brand new play by playwright Diana Lauren Jones. Chronic is a web (play) series about a support group for people with chronic conditions led by a nearly bankrupt therapist. The pilot episode, In Session–Group Agreements, is about the first meeting of the support group. Fresh Play is a bimonthly series that presents dramatic readings of original works. If you love live theater, you won’t want to miss SFPL’s Fresh Sunday Play Reading Series.
Kayla Minton Kaufman is a director who has worked in institutions across the nation, from American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco to Portland Stage in Maine. Of her Fresh Play Reading Series, Kaufman says that she “loves work that celebrates diversity, provokes discussion, and makes audiences laugh or cry (or just remember how to be human).”
