A public reading series of plays in translation from a diversity of cultures, Worldplay is produced by Puente Theatre and hosted by the Belfry.  Each reading is followed by a casual discussion of the play, often with the playwright and/or translator in attendance.  This is an engaging way to discover other cultures, ideas and practices.
