For our PENULTIMATE Cold Reads of Spring 2017 we bring you the THIRD installment of…

THR33Fest!

The number 3

Here’s how it works:
Each of these three writers started a script, then handed it off. The next person wrote a few more pages. Then handed it off. By the end, they had created three complete short scripts written in part by three different human beings!

This week’s scripts were written by:
Zoe Alexander, Winter Rowan and Sheila Toller

Plus writer’s challenge by David Straus.

And musical guest Mark Martyre will be joining us as well.
