The Skeletal Series is a festival of new works by theater artists from around the country.
SHOP/TALKS, held on Sundays and free to the audience, are part panel discussion, part workshop, and part Q&A. Visiting artists are paired with local theater artists to share works in progress and engage in conversations with each other and the audience. SHOP/TALKS welcome participants to volunteer for certain aspects of the events, including the reading of new work.
