The Play's the Thing 2015


April Showers Bring May Flowers
- April 17-19, 2015
produced by Catherine Zudak
Friday and Saturday at 8pm, Sunday at 2pm
A2CT Studio Theatre
Admission: FREE!

A2CT and Pass the Hat Productions celebrate spring with concert readings of original plays about springtime, romance, second chances, renewal, and coming of age. April is Sexual Assault and Prevention month, so included in the festival is a "Pass the Hat" benefit for organizations that support education, victims, and prevention.

Friday evening’s performance, directed by Joe York, features the full-length play Leda by Amy Crider (Chicago, IL). Leda, who was ravished by Zeus in one of his elaborate one-nighters, twists Greek tragedy through contemporary ironic and romantic turns to comment on both ancient and modern society. Saturday evening features one-act plays by local playwrights directed by Nakenya Lewis-Yarbrough; The Remarkable Adventures of Miss Peggy Primrose by Josephine Rood and Estate Sale by Lori Eaton. The Remarkable Adventures chronicles one turn of the century heroine’s attempts to keep up appearances after a too handsome cabin boy rescues her during a shipwreck on the Great Lakes, and Estate Sale is a thoroughly modern story that delves into the kindness we owe strangers. The final performance of the festival Sunday afternoon includes short plays directed by Trevor Maher, also by local playwrights, Brian Cox, Shawntai Brown, and R.D. Wakeman.  The shorts range from sweet romantic comedies to a funny, though dark trip to the morgue.
