Her fulllength play, “Reflections for a Warm Day”, was presented as a staged reading in 2007 at the Provincetown Theater/New Provincetown Players. “Wrinkled”, an adaptation of her screenplay “Wrinkles”, was stage-read in 2007 at the Dennis Senior Center on Cape Cod.
SECOND ANNUAL 24-HOUR THEATER EVENT TO TAKE PLACE JANUARY 13TH thru 14TH 2012 AT THE PROVINCETOWN THEATER.
For the second year running, the Provincetown Theater Company Playwrights’ Lab will present the 24-hour THEATER EVENT, a 24-hour marathon culminating in a presentation of eight short plays entirely written, directed and performed within 24-hours. Last year’s performance was sold out, and this year’s promises to be equally successful.
“We were thrilled that our playwrights, actors, directors and even the audience from last year expressed interest in continuing the tradition this year,” said Candace Perry, the Lab’s liaison to the Board of Provincetown Theater. “We had to do a lottery for writers this year because of increased interest. We are excited to have this become an annual event – and another sell out is clearly on the horizon.”
The program of short plays, written in 12 hours by eight playwrights, are based on a set of three props provided to the writers that must be incorporated into each play. The writers begin writing at 8PM Friday and turn in their plays by 8AM Saturday, at which time they are turned over to the directors and the actors, chosen by lottery Friday night, who work all day Saturday to prepare for the performance. The one-time performance takes place at 8PM Saturday at The Provincetown Theater (238 Bradford Street in Provincetown).
This year’s writers include Ellen Anthony, Jacqueline Loring, Brigid Moynahan, Jody O’Neil, Paul Pilcher, Bragan Thomas, Jerry Thompson, and Judith Underwood.
There is a suggested donation of $5 for the performance. There are no reservations – first come, first seated.
Actor and Director positions are still available for the event. For more information on participating, please email PTownPlaywrightsLab@gmail.com.
