The Vineyard Theatre has announced the lineup for its fall reading series. The Off-Broadway theatre will present three new works in September exclusively for 2016-17 season members.

The three plays will be Miller, Mississippi by Boo Killebrew (Romance Novels For Dummies), directed by Lee Sunday Evans; Laura and the Sea by Kate Tarker (Thunderbodies), directed by Dustin Wills; and Nostalgia Is A Mild Form Of Grief by Jerry Lieblich (D Deb Debbie Deborah), directed by Evans.

Here’s how the Vineyard bills the new plays:

Miller, Mississippi
September 13 at 7 PM
Spanning decades, from the Civil Rights Era to the early 1990s, this new Southern Gothic tale follows a genteel Mississippi family’s unraveling in the midst of societal change. The play examines a legacy of privilege that is as lurid as it is based in truth. The cast will include: Charlotte Booker, Roderick Hill, Jacob Perkins, Benja Kay Thomas and Mary Wiseman.

Laura and the Sea
September 19 at 7 PM
It’s company outing day, and Laura, one of the top travel agents of her generation, is having the best/worst day of her life. So much so that she decides to end it all. Afterwards, her colleagues try to piece things together on a memorial blog, but how do you mourn someone you didn’t know that well? A comedy about depression, or: a treatise on travel agents who don’t travel. Casting to be announced.

Nostalgia Is A Mild Form Of Grief
September 21 at 3 PM
Katie, a young photographer, comes home for a visit with her new boyfriend in tow. As her Mom shares baby photos, Katie gets sucked into a past she has tried hard to push away. A time-jumping journey through the wormholes of memory, family history, and time itself. Casting to be announced.

The Reading Series is included with all Vineyard memberships. Memberships are available at or by calling (212) 353-0303. For more information about Vineyard Theatre, visit
