The final Monday Night Special of the summer season takes place tonight. The works-in-progress events is hosted by the Vineyard Playhouse and takes place at the Hebrew Center in Vineyard Haven. A recent Monday Night Special featured plays by Robert Brustein and starred Tony Shalhoub and Brooke Adams in the reading. Earlier in the summer Joyce Carol Oates took the stage for a question and answer session following the reading of her new play Emily & Joyce.

This week the special is In Development, written by Yorri J. Berry and directed by Brandon Monokian. In Development stars Suzzanne Douglas of Tap, How Stella Got Her Groove Back and The Parent ‘Hood.
