Harvest, the 1st reading, by playwright Mike Dowling

A staged reading of Michael Dowling’s new play HARVEST was presented at The Stationery Factory in Dalton, MA, sponsored by Berkshire Theatre Group. 

The reading was to a full house of over 100 attendees and very well reviewed. 

I’m so grateful for the packed house at The Stationery Factory for the reading of HARVEST. Your feedback was very helpful and now… the play will soon be ready to get out into the world. Thank you to Steve Sears, Berkshire Theatre Group, the kick-ass cast and all of you who attended. I encourage everyone from my artistic community to check out this fantastic space. Cheers all!
Michael Dawling


HARVEST takes place in a small New England town on the night of the local high school’s 15 year high school reunion. The comedy is told in 3 interconnected parts, each one focusing on different classmates – some reliving the past, some struggling with their present and all trying to shape their uncertain future.
