Cincinnati Playwrights Initiative (CPI) is a grassroots, non-profit arts organization of Tri-State playwrights, directors, actors, and theater supporters dedicated to developing new plays written by local playwrights. CPI strives to provide a forum for playwrights to explore the possibilities contained within their work by providing a community of playwrights within which individual initiative can seek its fullest expression.  


"Testing, Testing, 1...2...3”

by Rodger Collins

The Cincinnati Playwright Initiative kicks off 2018 with a staged reading of Roger Collins’ “Testing, Testing, 1…2…3” on January 9th.

Your guides: Health teacher Mr. Cobb, struggling with life-forming vocational issues, and his students Bobby, tortured by his soldier father’s perils in the Middle East combat, and Val, a slave to her hyperactivity. All try desperately to determine if “normal” and “sane” are the same thing, and to come down on the side of sanity, albeit caught in what is perhaps another-than-sane context of consequentially questionable values and chronic terrorism.

The reading will be on Tuesday, January 9th at 7:30pm in the Arronoff Fifth Third Bank Theater.
