Festival Reading #8: Moriarty's Daughters by Claire Wittman
Directed by Susie Young

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle based his infamous villain Professor Moriarty on a real-life "Napoleon of Crime," an American bank robber, extortionist, art thief, and army deserter named Adam Worth. Lesser known among Worth's exploits was the fathering of four children: Lucy, Louise, Henry and a third daughter whose name has been lost to history. Little is known of their lives, leaving only speculation as to how Moriarty's daughters reconciled their past and parentage to the quickly approaching brave new world of the 20th century.

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.
