The last production of the American Repertory Theater of WNY 2011-12 season features the annual Local Playwrights One-Act Showcase. The showcase has been a highlight of ART's programming for a majority of this young theater's history and reflects the creative side of ART's mission to support a new generation of American playwrights and to utilize unknown or unproven talent.
Past one-acts featured the works of Mark Humphrey, Mark C Lloyd, Cindy Darling, Michael Votta and Matthew LaChiusa featuring the "unproven" acting talents of Jacob Albarella, Alania Renee Miller, Drew Piatek, Marie Hasselback Costa and others.
This season's showcase features actor turned playwright, John F Kennedy's PEOPLES, two works by WNY playwright DonnaMarie Vaughan entitled SPOILED and AMANDA'S EXPLANATION and modern-day Gen Y Shakespeare, Justin Karcher's DEATH POEM.
PEOPLES, directed by WNY repatriate, April A Jones, focuses on a "real slice of life" look at inner-city school kids and the challanges they face. SPOILED is a story about a mother sharing a nasty family secret with her daughter. Directed by ART's Michael Lodick, the other piece featuring DonnaMarie Vaughan's delightful writing style is a monolog, featuring the talented actress Bonnie Jean Taylor, is a monolog entitled AMANDA'S EXPLANATION detailing a woman's thoughts on a missing child. Justin Karcher's DEATH POEM, directed by Drew McCabe, reflects upon friendship in the face of a STD.
