Welcome to Script2Stage2Screen
The Premier Playwrights' Theatre of the Desert

BurtPeachy-TH

Welcome to the fourth season of Script2Stage2Screen, Coachella Valley's premier staged reading company. We are the performing arm of the Unitarian Universalist Church of the Desert, and therefore concerned with bringing you the best in scripts that further the missions of social justice, family, sexual equality, the dignity of all people, and the joy and humor of life. Our 2013-2014 season is a wonderful mix of comedy and drama that is sure to engage you and hold you spellbound. We are proud to present the work of eight fine playwrights from across the country.

Our staged readings differ from formal readings. Our actors are not seated behind music stands. They are up and moving. We use props and costume pieces in hopes that we can give you a more fleshed out experience of each play. Our actors are all volunteers from a wide variety of backgrounds. Some are professionals. For others it is a first time experience on stage. All have a love for the theatre and are willing to give their time, talents, donations and sweat equity to build a company you will admire, appreciate and patronize.

The writers whose work you will see this season come from as close by as Palm Springs and as far away as New York. All submitted their plays to us in the early Spring and our New Works Committee spent the summer reading dozens of new, unpublished plays. We met as a group to decide which scripts we felt best served our company and our community. We are all proud of the 2013-2014 season winners. From the ridiculous to the sublime we have something for everybody. There are thought provoking, gripping dramas and belly laugh comedies. You will meet characters you love and characters you loathe. You will giggle and shed tears this season.

On behalf of the entire Company of S2S2S, I welcome you to our site and to our season. We need your support, your comments, and your presence. There are many ways you can become part of the action. Volunteer to serve wine at a show. Help us find props. Bring your friends to our productions. Write us a check. Become a vehicle to promote important theatre and important principles.

Thank you for the opportunity to perform for you. With all the entertainment options in the Coachella Valley we appreciate that you chose us.

Gina Bikales, Artistic Director
