Plays Set for ‘Summerplay’ Readings

Here are the lineups for the two Sunday evening one-act play readings at Changing Scene Theatre Northwest , 5889 Highway 303 (behind the Orowheat Bakery). The 15 original one-acts survived the first cut of submissions for "Summerplay 2009 : A Festival of New Works," to be produced this summer, and audience and actor reaction will determine which of these plays will move on to the next round of eliminations.

Both evenings start at 7 p.m., and both pack a $5 admission. With seven plays up March 8 and eight more March 15, the readings should offer a lot of variety, plus the opportunity to hear immediate reaction from the playwrights, the actors and other audience members.

March 8 (in no particular order):
"Sam and Dotty" by John C. Davenport
"Chance" by Fedra Yadzi
"That’s What I Love About Art" by Craig Abernethy
"Tiny Little Gods and Big Giant Men" by Michael C. Moore
"Kitchen Sink Drama" by John C. Davenport
"Belief" by David Schroeder
"In The Shade of the Koran" by Ned Condini

March 15:
"Truckstop" by Arthur Reisch
"A Question of Ethics" by Flip Wingrove
"The Enemy" by Shannon Murdoch
"Who’s Afraid of George and Alice" by James Daly
"Before the Holy Temple" by David Brendan Hopes
"Father and the Cell Phone" by Flip Wingrove
"Doing Lunch" by Ron Ford
"You Don’t Say" by Miryam Gordon

The box office will open at 6:30 each night.

These are literally "readings" of the scripts. There will be no blocking, no special lighting, no sound, no effects of any kind. Just actors in chairs, including one for each script to read stage directions.

Readings will be followed by a "talk-back" at the end of the evening to discuss the plays read. CSTN will ask everyone in the room to fill out a short ballot, helping them gauge the audience response to each script.
