How About Some Food?

Not to eat, but to see how different playwrights take one topic - food - and write 10 minute plays about it.  That is what the Snowlion Repertory Theatre's PlayLab group has done. And tonight they open, 12 plays by local playwrights - one of which I wrote and two I directed. 

I was lucky enough to direct plays by renowned lesbian playwright Carolyn Gage and actress-director-playwright Bess Welden.  The producing directors of Snowlion took the casting reins and once more I got lucky with Karen Ball and Julia Langham to work with in Welden's Madeleines and for Gage's Clarity of Pizza, Katelyn Cyr and Bridgette Kelly. 

I also lucked out when Langham was also cast in my play, Pasta and Poetry, a satire of food TV game shows.  Big Shout out to the other actors- Patricia Mew, Eric Worthley, Victoria Machado and Andre Demers - who are rocking it and Al D'Andrea for directing.  A heart-felt thanks to all of you for bringing the words on the page to life on the stage!

Tonight is opening night so I hope we have a huge house for the actors as they really deserve to share their work with an audience.  Here's a link to an article in the Phoenix by Megan Grumbling.
