TRU will produce a New Plays Reading Series in June 2019 that will consist of 2-3 selected new works presented on Monday evenings at an Off-Broadway venue with 120 seats or more. Created to nurture producers as well as writers, TRU VOICES seeks producer-driven projects, and also matches writers with producers. Each reading is followed by a "Dollars and Sense" panel discussion with prominent New York producers, general managers and artistic directors focusing on potential venues, marketing and budgeting of the work. 
 
TRU welcomes a diverse range of new works, as long as they are full length (minimum of 80 minutes), and have not been performed in front of a paying audience in the New York area. According to TRU executive director Bob Ost, "We are equally interested in commercial works and the non-traditional and unconventional, and we have a special interest in finding works with multi-cultural significance."
 
"I direct a lot of these readings. But the event last night (and the whole experience) had to have been one of the most helpful, well thought out, useful readings I've ever been a part of."
~Jeremy Dobrish, director (Hell Hole Honeys)
What a night! We were all thrilled with the outcome of the reading, and there was some interest from some of the panelists to continue discussion about the play's next steps, so we're very excited about that opportunity. Great series! ~Frank Avellino, producer (Jasper)
Thank you so much for including Ego Actus in your TRU Voices Reading Series. It was a wonderful and informative experience for us. The panel discussion was very insightful and things we learned there will inform a lot of our decisions going forward, both on Adele's Way and future projects. ~Bruce A! Kramer, producer (Adele's Way)
 
"We have built an impressive record of shows being optioned for development right out of our series," notes TRU Literary Manager Cate Cammarata. "Early on, The Great American Trailer Park Musical went on to play off-Broadway.Taxi to Jannah and Missives were both at 59e59. More recently, Echoes of Octavia and Hummingbirds from 2015 were optioned by our series producers. The Assignment from 2017 moved off-Broadway and just completed a run at Luna Stage in New Jersey. And this past year Radio Galaxy was optioned for development by one of our talkback panelists."
