Put May 19, 2013 in your calendars. That’s when we are collaborating with our friends the Proscenium Playwrights to bring you our 3rd Annual NUTLAB 5 & 10!  We are again happy to announce that we are collaborating with the Proscenium Playwrights. We have a new venue this year though, Marran Theatre, Lesley University. We are even happier to announce that this year we are featuring ALL FEMALE directors from the Boston area.

As in previous years, of course we will have a talk-back with the Playwrights and actors. There will again be FABULOUS food from both Port 305 Marina Bay and Siros pre-and post show.

Are you feeling lucky? Fabulous Raffles (a 50/50 raffle, and a $1.00 raffle!) and of course, the reason you come each year…the wonderful plays directed by local directors and presented by local actors!
