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

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

First Look:

Sunday, May 15th @ 4:00pm -7:00pm

Bliss Point  by Joan Castagnone; directed by Luisa Battista

Alice and her estranged son Bruce must find a way to heal the past, even though they have not seen each other in 50 years…well not in this world anyway. Join us for sneak preview of the first act of this new comedy. 

Mommy's Little Princess by Teresa Lotz; directed by Celia Braxton

Lotz challenges our assumptions about relationship "norms" when Ingrid, her fiancé, and her new roommate find a unique way to play house.

Up and Coming:

Wednesday, May 18th @ 3:00pm and 7:00pm

The Mind in the Cave by Ann Chamberlin; directed by Mary McGinley

Ann Chamberlin creates an imaginative playground on the set of a supposed theatrical production, in which the scenic designer attempts to paint himself out of the box his father constructed for him years ago at Los Alamos . Simon says, weapons of mass destruction come in many forms.

From the Archive:

Thursday, May 19th @ 7:30pm

Mother of God! by Michele Miller; directed by Melody Brooks

Written by a Jewish mother about the ultimate Jewish Mother, you won't find this story in your family Bible! Profound, profane, humorous, thought-provoking, and somewhat  historically accurate.

Finalist for the Princess Grace Foundation Award, 2012, NPTC Workshop Production, March 2011.

All readings at New Perspectives Studio

Moderated by WW Senior Dramaturg Celia Braxton, Ph.D.

NPTC's Women's Work Project has been developing and producing critically acclaimed, provocative scripts since its inception in 1994. Under the leadership of Melody Brooks, NPTC Artistic Director and Celia Braxton, Ph.D., more than 40 scripts have been created and presented to the public in various forms.

Women's Work is made possible, in part, by the New York State Council on the Arts with the

support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and in part, with public funds from the NYC Dept. of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council.
