Arachnothology (A Study of Spiders) by Kimberly Patterson (Festival Reading #1)
Directed by Lauren Brooke Ellis
With a cast with all female performers, Arachnothology tracks the evolution of spiders through mythology, folklore, nursery rhymes, popular culture, and science to weave a tapestry about identity and choice--and whether or not it's possible to start over.

About the Festival:
Each summer at the end of July, we present a three-day event showcasing readings of student work from the Playwrights Lab. These readings are minimally staged for the general public and close to a dozen theatre professionals as respondents from as far away as Los Angeles and from as close as right here in Roanoke.
These readings are presented free to the public, but there is limited seating. 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.
