Women's Work Spring Mini-Festival!
Join us for readings of four powerful scripts from NPTC's innovative laboratory for new work.
Plus the Launch of our first-ever book!
First Look: Wednesday, April 19 @ -7:30pm
Bliss Point by Joan Castignone directed by Melody Brooks
Alice and her estranged son Bruce must find a way to heal the past, even though they have not seen each other in 50 years…well not in this world anyway.
Ready for Primetime: Monday, April 17 @ 3:00pm; Tuesday, April 18 @7:30pm
Mommy's Little Princess by Teresa Lotz directed by Celia Braxton
Lotz challenges our assumptions about relationship "norms" when Ingrid, her fiancé,
and her new roommate find a unique way to play house.
Up and Coming: Monday, April 17 @7:30pm
Splendid Grace by Charlotte Colavin, directed by Mary McGinley
In this epic story of three women carrying on their quiet and seemingly simple lives, Colavin asks the eternal question: "you ever wonder what it would be, if it wasn't this?"
From the Archive: Thursday, April 20th @ 7:30pm
Mother of God! by Michele Miller directed by Melody Brooks
Written by a Jewish mother about the ultimate Jewish Mother, you won't find this story in your family Bible! Profound, profane, humorous, thought-provoking, and somewhat historically accurate.
Finalist for the Princess Grace Foundation Award, 2012, NPTC Workshop Production, March 2011.
