WW Sculpture.JPGWomen's Work May Mini-Festival!

Join us for readings of three powerful scripts from NPTC's
innovative laboratory for new work.

Up and coming:

The Andrew Play by Alexis Roblan

directed by Jenny Greeman

Lena's fear of death has always been abstract and intellectual--until an abrupt and unexpected loss forces her to reckon with the practicalities of faith, skepticism, family old and new, and the confusing poetry and politics of grief.

Sunday, May 17th @ 6:00pm AND Wednesday, May 20th @ 2:30p

Ready for Primetime:

Straddling the Edge by Sandra A. Daley-Sharif

directed by Melody Brooks

A woman struggles with her sense of identity as wife, mother, and Caribbean daughter in a kaleidoscopic dreamscape that raises more questions than it answers.

Wednesday, May 20th @ 8:00pm

From the Archive:

Jihad by Ann Chamberlin

directed by Melody Brooks

Richard the Lionhearted and Saladin, leader of the Islamic forces during the Crusades of 1192, are visited by a mysterious woman who may be mother, wife, lover and perhaps Goddess. A mystical exploration of war, religion and the "mother of all battles" —that between the sexes! Winner of the 1996 OOBR Award for Best Play

Tuesday, May 19th @ 2:30pm

NPTC's Women's Work Project has been developing and producing critically acclaimed, provocative scripts since its inception in 1994. We invite our friends and colleagues in the industry for a preview of two new works, as well as an award-winning script from 1996.

Stay for the talk-back with Libation!
