At The Table: Plain Jane

A pivotal event in the life cycle of a screenplay, a table read is the opportunity to witness words brought to life, to participate in the synergy that collaboration brings to the creative process. If you have never attended the live reading of a screenplay by professional actors—and even if you have—this is not to be missed. A collaboration with SAG-AFTRA Chicago, this event is also a chance to scout some of the best actors working in Chicago. The reading will be followed by a moderated feedback session and the evening will end with a light reception.

Synopsis: Plain Jane follows buttoned-up Chicago morning news anchor Jane Wilson. After landing the network job of her dreams, Jane returns to her Bible Belt hometown to make sure a salacious secret from her past doesn't destroy her future.

Written by Keely Lewis Wise, Plain Jane is a winner of the 2017 Cassian Elwes Independent Screenwriting Fellowship. The Table Reading of Plain Jane is directed by filmmaker and producer at Digital Hydra, Jacquelyn Jamjoom.

When & Where: Monday, June 25th, 6:30pm at the offices of SAG-AFTRA (1 E. Erie St., Suite 660)
