Playwrights, theatre artists, and the general public convene in the Chicago Dramatists' theatre to witness the birth of a new work for the stage and to participate in its development by offering feedback to its playwright. The plays are always directed and rehearsed and are presented with minimal staging. After each reading, the audience members are invited to fill out written response sheets and to join in a post-reading discussion.

It's just another day at PerKup Elkhorn, the hottest local coffee shop in Elkhorn, Wisconsin, where happiness is sold per the cupful. Lori and Vicki gab about the latest town gossip, Jeff and Eric argue about the latest sports news, and the new cold brew is selling like hot cakes. But when newcomer, Pedro, stops by the shop to borrow WiFi for work, a collision of differences leaves irreparable damage. PerKup Elkhorn is an experiment on assessing how far we will go to protect the ones we love.
