Whistler Wednesdays: Lost Tempo, by Cliff Odle
Willie "Cool" Jones is a semi-famous jazz saxophonist who has come home after a self-imposed exile in Europe. Lured back with the promise of ownership in a club, he finds that his past demons and the ever-changing world of music compete for space with his ambitions. Cool's struggle takes place in the New York of the late 1950's - complete with players, hustlers, and the Nation of Islam.
On six Wednesdays throughout our fifth season, we at Whistler in the Dark will host a series of New Play Readings at The Factory Theatre. Whistler in the Dark is always looking to connect with new collaborators and partners and it is our hope that this ongoing project will, in addition to celebrating the vibrant work of our local Boston playwrights, become a meeting ground for Boston's up-and-coming directors and actors.
With a different director and cast for each reading, Whistler Wednesdays promise to introduce the Whistler audience to a host of new voices and artists in Boston. Following each of the readings, you'll have the chance to join the playwright, director and actors for a moderated conversation about the work.
