Playwrights on The Rise - "The God of Samaritan Women"

(Lakewood, NJ) -— Coming to the Strand Center for the Arts, Wednesday, January 12, 2011 at 8:00pm is Playwrights on The Rise-"The God of Samaritan Women".  This one woman show is performed by the author. The play provides an honest and real approach to the scripture and its modern day application. Readings are staged in the intimate setting of the theater's gallery.

After the reading, the audience can join the open discussion about the characters and plots. This discussion plays a vital role in the development of the play and helps the playwright understand if the audience fully captures the author's intentions.

Readings are conducted monthly during the academic year. Over 30 original plays have been read since the inception of the project. "Quiet Desperation" by M. Lennon Perricone, the first play read by Playwrights on the Rise, has been purchased by a theater company in the mid-west and is currently being staged.

In the past The Strand Theater has had several reading sessions including: Love Up In Flames, Dust In The Infield, Life Is Not Dress Rehearsal, and Mo'Tell. This All Ages show is only $5.00 for tickets, plus service charge, available at the door as you arrive. Join us; we hope to see you there!
