Staged Reading of Selections from the Catherine Lindsey Memorial Actors/Playwrights Workshop Series at Darien Library
On Sunday, June 10 at 2 p.m., the Catherine Lindsey Memorial Actors/Playwrights Workshop will present selections from the Workshop plays in the Library’s Community Room.
Now in its 20th 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 2012 Workshop series, which began in February.
The plays to be featured are:
Driven Crazy by Nina Carrozelli
Scrambled Eggs by Mary C. Charest
Green Pastures by Constance Carrozelli
Answer the Question, Iris by Stefanie DeLeo and Jenifer Menedis
Not Far From the Tree by Margaret D. Lindsey
The Chapel Street Café by Nicholas Troilo
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).
