First Public-Staged Reading of Selections from the Catherine Lindsey Memorial Actors/Playwrights Workshop Series at Darien Library
On Sunday, June 12 at 2 p.m., the Catherine Lindsey Memorial Actors/Playwrights Workshop will present the first public-staged reading of selections from the Workshop plays in the Library’s Community Room.
Now in its 19h year, the Actors/Playwrights Workshop offers local and regional playwrights and actors the opportunity to work together to produce original theatrical works in a supportive and creative environment. Co-founded by the late Catherine Lindsey and her husband Robert, the goal of the workshops is to encourage collaborative efforts in developing new plays, culminating in staged readings of scenes from full-length, one-act plays, musicals, and monologues before an audience. Catherine Lindsey was a beloved friend of Darien Library and director of the Darien Library Theater for over 25 years.
Under the direction of Robert Cusack, the public-staged readings mark the conclusion of the 2011 Workshop series, which began in February.
The plays to be featured are:
Dream Catcher by Marlene Gaylinn
The Trouble with Rhonda by Bob Liftig
The Family Room by Robert Lindsey and adapted by Margaret D. Lindsey
E.R. by Jill Sapenoff
Vatican 3G by Joe Starzyk
An Untitled Me by June Whittaker
Doors will open at 1:30 p.m. A reception will follow the performance.
Additional parking for evening and weekend Library programs on Thorndal Circle (behind Nielsen's).
