Black Chair Project (BCP) is a branch of Magenta Theater performing staged readings of plays throughout the year. BCP utilizes the bare minimum of rehearsal time. A set consisting of black chairs and black tables in front of whatever happens to be onstage at the time, actors dressed in basic black, whatever lighting is available, and a collaboration of actors providing their own props and sound effects. Everyone functions as part of the machinery speeding along to produce high-quality and entertaining staged readings.
