News from Barter:
THEY MUST BE WOMEN NOW has been selected for Barter Theatre's Appalachian Festival of Plays and Playwrights. Nedra will be in Virginia for a week of rehearsals, etc., in November. Barter is the nation's longest running Equity professional theatre, with alumni such as Gregory Peck, Ernest Borgnine, Ned Beatty, Hume Cronyn, Kevin Spacey.
And more SPEED DATING news:
SPEED DATING was part of the 7th Theatre Brut Festival at New Jersey Rep in October. The one-act had another production later in October at the Durango Arts Center in Colorado. The play qualified for the Durango fall festival by winning the People’s Choice Award at Durango’s 10 Minute Play Festival in May.
In an embarrassment of riches, SPEED DATING will be published twice—once in the Theatre Brut festival anthology, from Smith and Kraus, and again in THE BEST NEW TEN-MINUTE PLAYS 2020, by Applause Theatre & Cinema Books, an imprint of Rowman and Littlefield (edited by Larry Harbison).
Finally, news closer to home:
Pumphouse Players, an AACT theater that started in 1975, whose theater reigns over Main Street in Cartersville, GA, sponsored an excellent staged reading of Nedra’s play in progress, WAKE ME WHEN ITS OVER, in November. The cast included Susanne Husting (Mother), Tracy Barker (Suzanne), Dana Opsahl (Danielle), and Stacy King (Nicole), and was directed by Mallory Holder.
