Auditions are open to all. Rehearsals will then take place in late May through the performance in June.
The plays selected for performance by the Selection Committee are:
Just As I Promised by Nicholas Troilo
Bad Habit by Katy Murphy
A Last Bouquet of Roses by Kathleen Bernadette
Green Ledges by Terry Steimer
The Actors/Playwrights Workshop welcomes Actors’ Equity actors and non-Equity actors to participate, brings together local and regional playwrights and actors, and encourages a collaborative effort to create new plays and present a public-staged reading. Co-founded by the late Catherine Lindsey and her husband Robert, the workshop introduces original plays in progress to be developed in a workshop environment with the goal of the public-staged readings. Catherine Lindsey was a beloved friend of the Library and director of Darien Library Theater for over 25 years. The memorial workshops offer actors and playwrights the opportunity to work together to create original theatrical works in a supportive and creative environment culminating in the staged readings of short scenes from full-length plays, one-act plays, musicals, and monologues.
