City Theatre’s HOMEGROWN Play Reading Series

Four new short plays written by Miami’s best emerging playwrights.


Event Details

6:00 pm

Meet and mingle with HOMEGROWN playwrights BK King, Maleeha Naseer, Nerissa Street, and Brandon Urrutia and Vanessa Garcia, the Master Playwright leading the program.

7:00 pm

Professional actors read four new, short plays written by playwrights in City Theatre’s HOMEGROWN Playwright Development Program.

After the reading, audiences are invited to discuss the work with HOMEGROWN playwrights and Homegrown's Miami Master Playwright Vanessa Garcia.

Presented as part of City Theatre's HOMEGROWN playwright development program, this initiative is designed to nurture, elevate, and promote writers from historically marginalized communities. It provides the time, tools, and training needed to create their own body of work, aiming to diversify our professional playwright community in Miami and beyond. A cohort of four playwrights collaborates with the HOMEGROWN Master Playwright, Vanessa Garcia, engaging in creative instruction and professional development. You are invited to react to the new works and provide feedback as part of the play development process. To learn more about the program, please visit


Support for HOMEGROWN is provided by The Jorge M. Pérez Family Foundation at The Miami Foundation. This program is also made possible with the generous support of the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs and the Cultural Affairs Council, the Miami-Dade County Mayor and Board of County Commissioners. Sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Arts and Culture, the Florida Council on Arts and Culture, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
