New Play Readings--Knoxville

Tennessee Stage Company's New Play Readings

Since 1998, Tennessee Stage Company has produced The New Play Festival as a way to spotlight and nurture new playwrights and plays. As part of that festival, they head to the Library to give free table readings to the public. Join us to hear some of Knoxville's finest actors perform the following plays:

The Last Waffle House in America by Leslie Agron
According to playwright Leslie Agron there are no Waffle House's in California, so as you go west across America you come, literally, to the last Waffle House somewhere in Arizona.  This slice of life play takes place in and around the last Waffle House in America.

The Good Son by Craig Smith
The Good Son is a crime caper telling the story of a crime that went wrong and the way it comes back to haunt the guilty and the innocent. But who is guilty and who is innocent?

Cupid's Itch by Paul Leeper
Cupid's Itch is a unique and off beat love story set in the world of women's boxing! A shadowy world where things aren't always what they seem and people aren't always what you expect. What else might one expect from a Paul Leeper play?

  1. thanks for posting these. I'm looking for something my teen and I can do as an alternative to movies that's cheap. I really think she might like this--she's very bookish.

  2. I'm so glad that they were helpful. You might like to sign up for the Knox County Library e-mails. You'll receive them weekly, and they will give you up-to-date information about the programs that are scheduled. They often have programs especially geared towards teens--reading clubs, etc.

    The e-newsletter is also free. ;)
