This season we are going to play things by ear due to the ongoing COVID-19 situtation. The exact format of each performance will be determined as the situation evolves. The plays performed on each date are subject to change, please check back here for more information as each performance date approaches.

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

The Caltech Women's Club and the Athenaeum sponsor the Playreaders. Please see this page for Caltech Women's Club events. All Caltech/JPL community members are welcome to participate. To be added to the Playreaders emailing list or change your information, contact Arden Thomas (arden.e.thomas at
