Staged Reading of Selections from the Catherine Lindsey Memorial Actors/Playwrights Workshop Series at Darien Library
On Sunday, June 9 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 21st 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 2013 Workshop series, which began in February.
The plays to be featured are:
442: Go for Broke by Louis DiGiusto
Lenny and Freddy by Kathleen A. Bernadette
Dear Eva by Paul Janensch and Catherine Ladnier
A Tasting Menu by Mary Ellen Murphy
January Scared 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).
