Bess Welden (www.besswelden.com) lives and makes theater in Portland, ME. She’s written over a dozen plays and librettos that center women and girls, and the lived experience of the female body. She focuses on the complicated, powerful, and often fraught love in relationships between mothers and daughters, grandmothers and granddaughters, and between sisters, and often explores their stories through both a contemporary and historical Jewish lens.
The audience is invited to participate in a feedback session to help the playwright develop the play.
North Shore Readers Theater Collaborative—Established in 2006, sponsors ten events a year at TASN. On the second Saturday of every month from September to June new plays from local and regional playwrights are presented in a Readers Theatre format before an audience, followed by a moderated talkback. This provides playwrights an essential step in play development and local actors and directors the opportunity to work in the Readers Theatre format. A number of plays in the series have won awards and have been produced locally and internationally.
