What do you get when you combine local female playwrights, 2 October nights and 1 heaping spoonful of local actors and directors, stir gently and bake? Live Girls! Theater’s 2012 Layer Cake Reading Series, a part of our Bakery play development program. The Layer Cake Workshop is a program that helps playwrights with specific projects that that Live Girls! has committed to fully produce.  With intimate readings followed by talk-backs, the Layer Cake Readings will give audiences a unique opportunity to be directly involved in the shaping of new plays that they know will be part of future Live Girls! seasons.
