Festival Reading #7:Take 81 by Liesl Ehmke
Directed by Todd McNerney
Officer Wilcox-Emma Sperka
Stage Directions-Lydia Stewart
When two cowboys on the run, make their way to a all-night diner, they find out their lives are in just as much danger than they thought. The two must use their wits to escape, but what awaits them on the other side of freedom, is far from a happy ending.
About the Festival:
Each year, our New Works Advisory Board reads between 50 and 100 plays taken from the cumulative body of work of student playwrights who will be coming for the current summer session. These plays are ranked and vetted, and ten are selected for staged readings in collaboration with directors associated with our program--Certificate students, visiting faculty and guest artists.
These readings are presented free to the public, but there is limited seating. We also bring in more than a dozen guest responders who are active working theatre professionals from across the country. Many of our festival readings have gone on to be published, produced and won major awards. Come see tomorrow's stars today!
Our festival is presented in collaboration with Mill Mountain Theatre on their Waldron Stage.
