Other Mothers 24 Hour Playwriting Contest Performance - May 6
"I can't write about my mother - but I bet I could write about yours."
Date: Sunday, May 6 - 4:00 p.m.
Place: Off Center for the Dramatic Arts (294 North Winooski Ave., Suite 116C, Burlington)
Tickets: $10 at the door (reserve by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org)
Join Complications Company and BurlingtonVT Moms Blog at Off Center for the Dramatic Arts for a fun afternoon of staged readings about all that is marvelous and infuriating about moms!
Local playwrights (including Meredith Gordon, Seth Jarvis, Emer Pond Feeney and Kim Jordan, among many other stellar writers) had 24 hours to write a short play based on ANOTHER playwright's mother.
A company of local actors (Cael Barkman, Karen Lefkoe, Sarah Mell and Jena Necrason) together with directors Laura Roald and Mary Beth McNulty have five hours to bring these brand new plays to life.
This weekend is a theatrical intensive on bringing ideas to the stage quick, with passion, style, wit and flair.
Representatives of the BurlingtonVT Moms Blog will serve as our blue-panel judges to crown one of these newly minted fictional characters Mom of the Year!
This unusual writer showcase is a culmination of a crazy weekend of shotgun theatrical creativity, and we want to invite everyone down to Off Center to celebrate motherhood as a fun wind-up to Mother's Day the following weekend.
Tickets are $10 and are available at the door. If you would like to reserve a seat, please email email@example.com. All reserved seats will be released five minutes before the show begins at 4:00 p.m.
