Roundabout Theatre Company presents the tenth annual Roundabout Underground Reading Series. This four-night event that includes nightly readings of new works written by playwrights Liz Appel, Noah Diaz, Daria Miyeko Marinelli and York Walker will go virtual this year, and is by invitation only. Roundabout Underground is part of Roundabout’s New Play Initiative, which aims to discover new artists and provide them with long-term development and production support. This year, the following works featured are described by the show’s promoters as follows:

YOU WILL GET SICK
By Noah Diaz, Directed by Will Davis
Friday, January 21 at 5:00PM

What do you do if you get sick but don’t know how to tell your friends and family? Maybe you could hire a stranger and tell them everything instead. In You Will Get Sick, two strangers’ lives intertwine as they barrel down the pathway of terminal illness and caregiving. This play is a surreal meditation on grief, shame, and finding peace in your body.

BEAUTIFUL BLESSED CHILD
By Daria Miyeko Marinelli, Directed by Miranda Cornell
Wednesday, January 19 at 5:00PM

Aimiko is moving across the country to start a life with t/her partner and invites t/her mother, Sharon, to accompany them. (Sharon has never heard of a mother daughter-child road trip.) When Aimiko’s Saab-93 breaks down in the middle of Nevada, time and space begin to blur, and soon tales of cannibals, cranes, and samurais guide their journey into the desert and far beyond.

COVENANT
By York Walker, Directed by Lili-Anne Brown
Thursday, January 20 at 5:00PM

Two years after his sudden disappearance, struggling guitarist Johnny Honeycomb  James returns to his small town a blues star, setting into motion rumors that he may have made a deal with the devil to attain his musical genius. Inspired by the myth of Robert Johnson, Covenant explores the power of belief and tests the thin veil between rumor and truth.

BELLS LIKE HOOVES
By Liz Appel, Directed by May Adrales
Tuesday, January 18 at 5:00PM

When Jo’s fiancée disappears, close friend Xanthe and her partner Inez, come to her aid. While they spiral into their own explorations of both grief and love, Jo embarks on a mysterious journey to search for answers in the ghostly darkness of the space between time and between worlds.
