June 11, 2012
OF SERPENTS AND SONS a ten-minute play by Jessica Andrewartha
SIT DOWN, DAISY a ten-minute play by Grant Alexander MacDermott
BRICK a one-act play by Laura Neubauer
Jessica Andrewartha is a playwright, a screenwriter, a proud SMU alumni, a lover of puns, a prober of the inner depths of the human soul, and a believer in the transformative power of stoner comedies. Jessica gets most of her writing done thanks to the group Quite Write. She makes ridiculous videos with Fifteen Dollar Films of LA, and she makes a living at the Huntington Theatre Company.
Grant Alexander MacDermott is a new playwright with a background in performance. He earned his BFA in Acting from Emerson College in 2009. Since then he has appeared in multiple productions in and around Boston. His writing made its debut this year at the Boston Theater Marathon with his piece, "King Richards." He is very excited to be a part of Interim Writers.
Laura Neubauer earned a Master of Fine Arts in Playwriting from the University of Nevada Las Vegas and has taught theatre at the College of Southern Nevada. She also serves on the Talk Back Team for Trinity Repertory Company of Providence, RI. Ms. Neubauer’s work has been produced at the Salt Lake Shakespeare Company, Theatre O in Boulder, CO and the Nevada Conservatory Theatre as well as in numerous short-play festivals around the country. Her full-length play, The Chasm, was a semi-finalist for the 2009 David Mark Cohen National Playwriting Award. More recently her short play, Queen Bee, became a finalist for the Arizona Centennial Playwriting Competition and took home an award for Best Script at Wasatch Theatre Company's Page-to-Stage Festival in Salt Lake City.
An audience talkback, lead by co-founders and playwrights Cassie M. Seinuk and Max Mondi, will follow each piece. Your comments and reactions will be a valuable asset to this workshop and to the playwrights during their process.
Interim Writers is a new collective dedicated to the fostering and development of Boston Playwrights. To this end, we hold bimonthly readings where invited playwrights present a piece in any stage of development in order to obtain feedback and hear their ideas out loud. Interim Writers is a resource for writers to have their plays workshopped in a supportive, constructive environment, and for Boston theater companies to come discover new plays and voices.
