Cardinal at Home Details:

Cardinal is commissioning playwrights from all over the country to create a series of short plays that you can perform with your family and friends in the safety and comfort of your own home. Do a kitchen table reading just for fun or go show off your acting chops and make a video of your performance! 

We encourage you to share your reading or performance. There are two ways you can do this: 

  1. Post the video on social media – be sure to tag us (@cardinalstage)
