A weekend of staged readings at American Stage in St. Petersburg features new voices in theater.

Think of American Stage’s 21st Century Voices festival of new plays as one-stop shopping for theater — over the course of one weekend you can gorge on new work from Tampa Bay playwrights (and beyond). From Gina Stevenson’s looks-to-be-chilling The Colony on Thursday to American Stage’s playwright-in-residence Natalie Symons’ The People Downstairs on Sunday, it appears the festival will give you a full weekend of new voices with lots to say.


American Stage, 163 3rd St. N., St. Petersburg | Jan. 3-6; one show nightly and two on Saturday | $10 per staged reading/ $40 all-access | americanstage.org
