The Read Not Dead ground rules are simple. Actors rehearse the play on a Sunday morning and present it, script in hand, to an audience later that afternoon.


In the febrile atmosphere of post-war Holland, tensions run high, rebellion breaks out, and Barnavelt must stand trial. This real-life political thriller, staged only months after Barnavelt’s actual execution, was censored by the Master of the Revels for its political content.
