The Female Quixote, by Claire Wittman (Festival Reading #4)
What does the story want? Someone to tell it.
Stuck inside on a rainy day, a dozen young dreamers transform Charlotte Lennox's novel The Female Quixote into a play of their very own. Like her namesake from Cervantes, their story's title character, Arabella, believes all the world is her personal fairytale. However, as the realities of loss and love begin to intrude on her dreams, she must learn what it truly means to be a heroine.

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. Normally, these eight readings are minimally staged at Mill Mountain Theatre's Waldron Stage for the general public and close to a dozen guest professional responders from all over the globe.
This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing, Festival readings will be presented live online via Zoom (all times Eastern).
All Festival Readings are free and open to the public. But tickets will be limited.
