The First Draft screenplay series offers local screenwriters the opportunity to stage readings of their work using professional actors in front of a live audience, followed by feedback from industry insiders and audience members, alike. The scripts for Monday, March 9 will be The Little Drummer Grrrl written by Jess Grant and Czar of Detroit by Guy Steele and Arthur Rains-McNally.
