A Public Fit Stages First Public Reading

A year ago, a group of actors and directors began meeting around a table to read contemporary plays. The group ultimately evolved into A Public Fit, a theater company. And they will take the stage this weekend with a staged reading of the critically-acclaimed play Belleville.

Ultimately, the group aspires to bring more professional actors and designers to the Las Vegas Valley. Cast members and the artistic director talk about the play, and what they hope to accomplish with the company.
