Title Wave: The New Works Series features readings of new plays in development, providing playwrights a chance to hear their works in progress in front of an audience, and learn from the audience's response. The series presents work from diverse and contemporary storytellers, introducing the audience at Bay Street and the East End community to up-and-coming works for the theater. Scripts from previous Title Wave readings have gone on to full productions both at Bay Street and at theater companies around the country. The 2018 reading of The Prompter was later produced during the 2019 Mainstage Season to much critical acclaim, and the reading of Amy Berryman's Walden from the same year just opening on the West End in London.

Bay Street Theater's 2021 New Works Series is curated by Hope Villanueva, Literary Manager at Bay Street Theater, Artistic Director Scott Schwartz, and Associate Artistic Director Will Pomerantz. Plays are read by professional actors in their entirety, accompanied by minimal staging. Each reading is followed by a talkback, during which the playwrights and the audience have the opportunity to ask questions and share their reactions to the play.
