Within the Walls

A Series of Play Readings
Dates TBD - 

New plays are often not produced until they have been proven to be successful.  In this series of play readings, we will give voice to new works by a diverse group of playwrights. Compass Rose has a mission to embrace our differences by including a wide variety of artists and audiences.  With our new play reading series, Within the Walls of Maryland Hall, we invite you to experience some new and evocative plays. 


The Sneeze 

by Anton Checkhov
Translated and Adapted by Michael Frayn
January 20 – February 12, 2023

A series of hilarious short plays, Drama, The Sneeze, The Bear, Swan Song, The Proposal and Plots. Chekhov, known first for his comedies, perfectly captures the foibles and desires of his characters to create a wonderful evening of theater. Written in the 1880’s, these stories are as true today as they were then. One of them pokes fun even at a sneeze, which we can all appreciate in 2023!
