Monday, July 16, 2012, Shakespeare's Sister will present Amina Henry's new play-in-progress, "The Secret Keeper" and will be casting some of the roles from the audience for this project. Actors, come and play.
"The Secret Keeper " is a surreal dark comedy. On a journey to find the person to confess her secrets, our heroine, Ross and her pet fish, Andy, become stuck in a nightmare when their car breaks down in a nowhere town. As they wait in a diner for what seems like an eternity, Ross discovers the secrets the locals struggle with while grappling with the weight of her own.
Shakespeare's Sister is thrilled to be hosting week four of these original play readings. It's been a truly wonderful way for audiences to be a part of Live Art, witnessing the early development of these wonderful scripts and, with audience feedback, challenges these authors to make great script improvements with a goal of producing stories at a large scale event. Audiences will have a direct impact on the direction the playwright will take with their script.
New Playwright every Monday Evening, continuing June 18th through August 13th from 6:30 - 8:30pm at The Delancey, located at 168 Delancey Street (between Clinton and Attorney). J, M, Z, F trains to the Delancey stop. Free event with a one drink minimum. Over 21+ only.
