A play a week reading challenge

A play a week reading challenge

A play a week reading challenge is perhaps pretty self-explanatory, but I’ll tell you what it’s about anyway!

It’s no secret that I like reading challenges, even if I am fairly slow in completing them. (I’m such a mood reader!). But this challenge is something I noticed somewhere on social media a few years back. At that point I was still in university so I read plays from time to time (I studied Dramaturgy). But now that I’m working in the field, I don’t actually read that many plays anymore.

So why not make it a reading challenge for myself?

52 plays – a play a week for a year

It’s very simple actually. Each week for a year I have to read a script for a play. It can be any kind of play, but I have to read at least one a week. I figured this was doable, since I do want to read other books as well.

So for 2020, I am reading a play a week. You can follow my progress here or create your own weekly challenge – even if it’s in the middle of the year! Any week can be the starting week.

Below is a list of all the plays I’ve read for this challenge. Some might be re-reads or part of other challenges as well. I’ll start by reading plays I already have at home or can easily access, without buying more.

This should be fun. Let me know in the comments if you want to read with me, are taking up the challenge or have created your own!
