2015 Showcase of New Work
Monday, June 22. 7:30pm. FREE
Boston Playwright’s Theatre
I belong to a playwriting group called Writers at Play, all of who members are MFA playwriting alumni of Boston University. The group is launching a playwriting showcase, a sampling of full-length new work ready for development/production. A the event, each playwright will briefly speak about the play, their voice, and where they are in the development process, then we will present 10-20 minutes of scenes as a reading using the professional actors who support us during our writing season.
After by Peter M. Floyd: Nearly everyone of Earth has vanished without a trace, but those remaining have problems of their own.
Duplex by Deirdre Girard: A light-hearted drama with lots of dogs, sex, and unlikely friendships.
Time Steps by Colleen M. Hughes: A group of women unearth the secrets, jealousies, and teen angst they’d thought they’d left on the dance floor many years ago.
There (But for the Grace) by Michael Towers: Andrew’s idea of ritual cleansing is a bit jarring to his former partner’s sensibilities. And why wouldn’t it be?
A Theatre of Jerks by John Zakrosky, Jr.: Cara and her family must make one last decision in the life of their terminal and beloved son and brother. A comedy!
