The mission of Stripped Scripts is to create a unique environment for collaboration between actors and writers. Stripped Scripts' hosts unrehearsed and staged play readings, stripped away of elaborate sets, stage directions, costuming, and ticket sales in order to focus on the actor's choices and the words of the text. This format allows for in the moment, organic development of the liaison between writer and actor where characters are voiced in fresh and potentially unexpected ways. Stripped Scripts' cultivates a space for actors and writers to come together to tell stories in front of an intimate audience. Founded in 2014 by Allison Threadgold, with it's first home in Santa Barbara, California, Stripped Scripts is now bi-coastal with a new home in New York.
