Catherine Lindsey Playwrights Workshops

Community members are invited to join us for a two-part workshop on four original one-act plays from local playwrights. The selected plays will be announced Monday, April 9th.

Interested actors are invited to audition on Thursday, April 26th at 6:30 p.m. On Sunday, June 10th at 2 p.m., the Actors/Playwrights Workshop will present the first public-staged reading of selections from the plays in the Library's Community Room.

About the Workshop

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 Actors/Playwrights Workshop welcomes all interested playwrights and actors, with or without experience, to join. The sessions offer actors and playwrights the opportunity to work together to create original theatrical works in a supportive and creative environment, culminating in the May 21st program, which will feature four staged performances.
