Geva Theatre Center unveils its line-up for Plays in Progress 2013 to be held in the Nextstage on February 25, March 18 and March 25. Plays in Progress is a vibrant and innovative mix of plays by some of the most exciting playwrights working today. These plays are so new that they are not even published yet and through Geva's Plays in Progress program, writers can hear their work performed, discuss the play with the audience and then continue to work on the play to its next level.
"We're proud to introduce three talented playwrights to Rochester," commented Geva's Literary Director and Resident Dramaturg, Jenni Werner. "Andrew Rosendorf, Deb Laufer and Mat Smart have written intriguing, provocative plays that explore the limits of our dedication, the unreliability of memory and the intricacies of family dynamics. These three plays are both timely and universal, and I know that each of them will spark a great dialogue. I'm positive we'll see more from these writers, and Plays in Progress audiences can say they've been there from the very beginning."
Here is the line-up for Plays in Progress 2013:
Tinker to Evers to Chance
The plays will be presented in an informal, script-in-hand performance format and are followed by a discussion with the playwright. Plays in Progress 2013 is part of Geva Theatre Center's ongoing commitment to developing and producing new work for the American theatre.
