Roundabout Theatre Company has announced the lineup of playwrights for its 2024 Underground Reading Series. Now in its 16th season, the five-night series features new works by emerging artists in nightly readings. 

This year, the reading series will include Dylan Guerra'a The Grief Eater Near North Bender, Matthew Libby's Data, Alex Lin's Chinese Republicans, Ankita Raturi's No One Plays Badminton in America, and Arun Welandawe-Prematilleke's The Present. Readings will be held February 12-16, 2024 at 5:00 PM at the Black Box Theatre in the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre. 

The Roundabout Underground series is part of Roundabout's New Play Initiative. In addition to the Black Box productions, each playwright receives a commission for a future play, and Roundabout aims to provide them with long-term development and production support.

Underwriting support for the series is provided by Salman and Vienn Al-Rashid, and readings and workshops at Roundabout are supported, in part, by the Blanche and Irving Laurie Foundation.
