Theatre Conspiracy is pleased to announce staged readings of works by local playwrights starting on September 5. Each work will be performed at the Foulds Theatre, Lee County Alliance for the Arts. Admission is only $5. Tickets can be purchased at the door or at www.theatreconspiracy.org.
These three works have been developed through Theatre Conspiracy's playwrighting group “Playwright Conspiracy”. The three playwrights have met once a week for the past ten months developing their work. Wally Kain will have his play THE MARRIAGE COUNSELOR on Friday September 5 at 8PM. Fay Ellen Graetz's play WIND FARM will be performed on Saturday September 6 at 8PM and John Repa's play HARKER'S JOURNAL will be performed on Sunday September 7 at 2PM.Sunday.
The staged readings consist of basic sets and props. The actors will read from scripts but move about the stage, except for Harker’s Hournal, that play will be read only. Each show is given 4-5 rehearsals to prepare. This is a great opportunity to support not only new work BUT work by local playwrights.
Harker’s Journal by John Repa: Jonathan Harker is at Dr. Sewards’ Sanitarium to recover not only his health, but also his memory of the last four months. Joining the hunt for answers is Professor Van Helsing, a pioneer in the new field of psychiatry. But when Harkers wife, Mina, receives and reads Jonathans’ journal she must consider the possibility that her husband is mad; for the alternative is even worse; not only for his life and sanity, but for all of them. Perhaps even for all of humanity. The key to the survival of all lies locked in the mind of Jonathan Harker. Harkers’ Journal; a story of faith, science, the soul and the true nature of vampires.
WIND FARM by Fay Ellen Graetz: A family vies for control of the family farm. After his wife’s stroke, Dan summons his daughter, Katy, back to the homestead to serve as caregiver. When Victor returns, after serving in Afghanistan, he finds a war waged locally over plans to erect industrial wind turbines across the rural community. Katy has her sights on running the farm, but what secret is she keeping? How far will Victor go to influence the winds of change? This two-act play was written by Fay Ellen Graetz and is directed by Elizabeth D'Onafrio.
The Marriage Counselor by Wally Kain The marriage of a fortyish couple is near failure because the husband is all but irresistible to women and his wife believes he is unfaithful to her. They engage a marriage counselor. In the course of counseling the counselor falls for the husband. Committing a cardinal sin in her profession, she plays her own hand and finds the marriage irreparable. Counselor gets her man. Or does she?
