I am over the moon to share the news that "Things That Are Round" will be part of this year's Little Festival of the Unexpected at Portland Stage. I am so lucky to have found such a wonderful home to workshop my new plays here in Maine.
The description for the play is: Tetherly, a dentist specializing in existential terror, and Nina, an opera singer who just might be the worst babysitter ever, square off in a strange ballet of truth or dare. But is this a game anyone can even win? "Thelma and Louise" meets "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" On steroids.
I am so grateful to have the chance to work on the play in advance of its world premiere in November at Rep Stage in Columbia, Maryland, since the rehearsal period will be very short.
I'll have 10 hours of rehearsal under the direction of Dan Burson, and actors Eva Kaminsky and Sol Crespo are coming up from New York to help bring this to life. (Eva worked on the play with me about a year and a half ago down at the Lark in NYC.)
There will be two public readings of the play, on Wednesday, May 9 at 7pm, and Saturday, May 12 at 3:30pm.
Here is a link to info on my two readings as well as the other plays in the Festival!
And here is the announcement in BroadwayWorld!
