Boston Theater Marathon XXIII: Special Zoom Edition
Boston Theater Marathon XXIII: Special Zoom Edition features readings of ten-minute plays by New England playwrights in collaboration with New England theatres, via the video conferencing tool Zoom. BTM XXIII is a free event; audiences are encouraged to lend their support to area theatre companies and to the Theatre Community Benevolent Fund, which provides financial support to theatres and theatre artists in times of need.
Readings begin at 12 noon ET, Monday-Saturday, through May 28. To join the Zoom, click on the "Purchase Tickets" button on the right from your computer, phone, or other device. You’ll need the Zoom app (it's free!) to participate, and it is recommended you call in a few minutes before “curtain” time.

Featuring Alaysia Penso and Anderson Stintson III
Gabby tries to convince Taj to make the trek to Nutley to go to a party. Taj is unimpressed with Gabby’s interest in her “edgy” (and entirely Caucasian) new friends, and sees his fellow outsider buddy drifting away as she primps and spritzes and preps to impress her new friends…and a potential love interest.
Here is the complete, day-by-day schedule of plays in BTMXXIII.
