I am pleased to announce that my short play Wedding Night will be getting a staged reading in May at Anacostia Playhouse in Washington, D.C.
Renee Charlow is set to direct the piece on May 8th as a part of the theatre's New Voices New Works program. The performance will begin at 7pm, and will also include A Day Outdoors by Steve Gold and Scott and Zelda Shapiro by Lawrence DuKore.
The theatre solicited plays from across the country that adhered to the theme "Love will make you do right/make you do wrong." The chosen plays will be presented on three subsequent Mondays, April 24th, May 1st, and May 8th. All tickets for the reading are pay-what-you-can.
Wedding Night depicts a young woman saying goodbye to her mother and moving in with her new husband under less than ideal circumstances. As darkness descends, new possibilities emerge that none of the three ever anticipated.
If you're in the D.C. area in May, I hope you'll come out and see the play!
