Dorothy Berwin and Colt Coeur's Play Hotel reading series will present an industry reading of Nikole Beckwith's Everything is Ours tonight, March 18th at 7:15pm at 115 W. 45th Street (11th Floor) in Manhattan. Directed by Adrienne Campbell-Holt (Recall, Fish Eye, Seven Minutes in Heaven), the cast includes Katya Campbell (Recall, The Big Knife), W. Tre Davis, Adam Harrington (HIT-LIT), Rachel Resheff (The Big Meal), Kate Roberts (Breakfast at Tiffany's, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson), Philippa Soo (Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812), and Joe Tippett (Fish Eye, Seven Minutes in Heaven).
Everything is Ours is an ultra-contemporary upstairs-downstairs comedy of manners-- Wes Anderson meets Christopher Durang... It is also a love story that deals with how people, especially women, are defined by having or not having children. And it is uproariously funny.
Colt Coeur, an artists' ensemble, collaboratively creates theater from the ground up. Founded in 2010, Colt Coeur has created and produced 3 world-premieres: Seven Minutes in Heaven, together as a company with playwright Steven Levenson; Fish Eye, with playwright Lucas Kavner, and Recall, by Eliza Clark.
Nikole Beckwith's plays have been read and performed with Ensemble Studio Theater, LAByrinth Theater Company, The Rattlestick Playwrights Theater, Barrow Street Theater, 3LD, The Flea, Lesser America and the Old Vic in London. She is an alum of EST's Youngblood, a former associate artist of Atlantic Center for the Arts and a 2010/2011 member of The Public Theater's Emerging Writers Group. Her first play Everything is Ours was a finalist for the 2011 National Playwrights Conference and was part of Chautauqua Theater Company's New Play Workshop 2012 Signature Staged Reading Series, directed by Adrienne Campbell-Holt. Her newest play Stockholm, Pennsylvania recently finished a SuperLab with Playwrights Horizons & Clubbed Thumb directed by Jo Bonney, and her screenplay adaptation of the script garnered her a 2012 Nicholl Fellowship in Screenwriting, awarded by The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and made the 2012 Black List of best (as of yet) unproduced screenplays.
