As of April 22, 2022, Caltech requires the universal use of masks, regardless of vaccination status, in indoor settings on campus. High-quality masks (surgical, N95s, KN95s, or KF94s) must be worn in all indoor locations on campus.

CAMPUS VACCINATION POLICY: All attendees at indoor or outdoor social events on campus must be fully vaccinated and must present proof of full vaccination status at entry to the event. Proof of a negative PCR test result from within 72 hours prior to the event will be accepted only for those individuals who have an exemption. Please see the Caltech Together website for more information.

If you plan to dine at the Athenaeum before the reading, your party should be seated by 5:30 pm. You may order before everyone in your party has arrived. You are welcome to join the Playreaders' table. Please consult with the Athenaeum website for reservations and the latest information regarding Athenaeum dining and COVID restrictions.

Readings usually run about two hours. Please plan to linger for discussion and refreshments.
