First Look Readings is the Traverse’s celebration of new writing, in which three Traverse-commissioned plays will be performed in front of an audience for the very first time, script-in-hand by professional actors. Brennan Artist Adura Onashile‘s Some of Us Are Brave is the first of the season’s plays.
