Chris Weikel's PENNY PENNIWORTH - A Benefit Reading for Emerging Artists Theater
Playwright Chris Weikel
Director: Mark Finley
Cast: Ellen Reilly, Jamie Heinlein, Christopher Borg, Igor Goldin
A benefit reading!! Chris Weikel's Penny Penniworth is a labyrinthine romp through 19th-century English literature as presented by a severely short-staffed theatre troupe with Royal Shakespeare Company pretensions that decides to produce a "lost" Dickens epic. The original cast is reunited for one night only in this tour de force in which they portray a cavalcade of comic characters in a gender-bending tale of true love thwarted, wealth, deception, abduction and true love regained.

Emerging Artists returns with their one-of-a-kind festival. Visit the theater any evening during this three-week event, and you'll find yourself transported in a number of surprising ways: by a single performer embodying a whole host of characters; by a more experimental theater piece "done differently" that challenges and delights; by a cozy two-person show exploring relationships; or perhaps by a bouncy new musical that will have you humming. Emerging Artists has always been about new works, new talents, new voices. That's never been more evident than now.
NO REFUNDS will be granted.
