Three evenings of new plays written by Newburyport’s finest weekend writers
June 14-16, Friday, Saturday 8pm, Sunday 5pm
Weekend Writer’s Workshop: An evening of 10 new plays written by Newburyport’s finest Weekend Writers. “Each year has been outstanding and we are excited for a fifth collection of must-see drama and comedy written, performed, and directed by a very talented group”, says Marc Clopton, Executive Director of TASN, “providing a terrific night of theater, filled with surprises!”
Every third weekend a group of award-winning playwrights and actors gather at The Actors Studio to collaborate and workshop each other’s new work. The playwrights give their pages to the actors in advance, the actors bring the words to life, suggestions are made, and before long new plays are born.
“We have some of the area’s best writers and actors banding together to create our own form of magic”, says actor, director, and playwright Charlie Bradley. “The help I’ve received has been fantastic”.
“All of us are open to the endless possibilities that each new piece of writing represents” says playwright, Jack Rushton. “We’re partners in each other’s work and use our collective talents so each piece realizes its fullest potential”.
Workshop playwrights have been produced at more than seventy-five festivals around the country, from The Fusion Theater’s The Seven to The Players Theater in NYC, and their plays have been performed at The Boston Theater Marathon more than a dozen times.
“We’ve become a troupe”, says actor and director, Sherry Bonder, “From a group of friends and colleagues we’ve assembled this amazing universe of talent all dedicated to the work itself and to each other.”
All proceeds will benefit The Actors Studio of Newburyport.
Tickets: $20 Adults/ $18 Students and Seniors
