Fail Better Reading Series: Sunnyside Edition

A workout space for NYC based multi-disciplinary artists seeking a supportive community to share their unfinished and messy creations. Our Fail Better Reading Series is open to all!

We welcome plays, film/tv/web series, sketches, solo shows, storytelling, monologues, songs, and more.

Don't fit into any of these categories? Send us an email at and tell us more about you and your piece.

Experiment with your "mess"-in-progress in our developmental space where you’re given room to fail...and grow.
