On Monday night the Bechdel Board (3/4s of us - we miss Gina!) took over the August reading and we had a blast!
Patti Veconi's The Bridal Shower had us laughing at the complications and definitions of family. Alexa Fitzpatrick's The Best Medicine answered the question: what would life be like if our inner child were a real person who followed us around? Suzanne Willett took us through time in Boston from the bombing of the marathon all the way back to the 1970s segregation.
Summer is over, but we've got lots coming up on our Fall Reading Season:
Monday, September 26th:
Bara Swain’s Providence
Suzanne Egan's Homestyle
Monday, October 24th:
Lavinia Roberts’ The Will
Brooke Berman’s Hurricane
Monday, December 12th:
Kristine M. Reyes’ Eggs on Ice
John Barrow’s Lillian Paula Carson
And don't forget that our next podcast will be posted the second week of the month. Paris Crayton III's Baby Lottery was created for our July 24-hour playwriting contest. We loved it and we think you will, too!
The reading period for our Spring Season is still open – all scripts received between now and November 15th will be considered. Please read our submission guidelines carefully!
We'll see you in Jimmy's back room!
