25 Oct 2015 Dark at the Center
What a remarkable evening.
I’ve just returned from performing a supporting role in a wonderful new play, Dark at the Center by Deborah Savadge. It was the winner of this year’s Playwrights First competition, and is smart and dark and provocative – I can’t wait to see where this play heads next. The reading was directed by the inimitable John Howard Swain, and featured (besides me, of course) Amy Wilson, Brad Holbrook, Steve Hauck, Michael Ford, Jessica Raaum Foster, and Ray Crisara.
The play concerns a professor accused of child pornography, and deals with the ripple effects on his relationships and the people surrounding him. The writing is lyrical, rhythmic and tight, and it is such fun to leap into writing of this caliber. What a remarkable evening.
