The Tony Award-winning Eugene O’Neill Theater Center named eight plays to be developed this summer at the 2011 National Playwrights Conference (NPC) in Waterford, CT. Tony nominee and Pulitzer Prize finalist Quiara Alegría Hudes (In the Heights) is among the writers.
The selected playwrights will spend the month of July at the O’Neill’s campus developing and presenting staged readings of their work — in a process that employs professional creative and support staff, including directors, dramaturgs, actors, and designers — during the NPC’s 47th season.
An Incident by Anna Ziegler
Performances: Friday, July 15 at 7:15 PM; Saturday, July 16 at 8:15 PM
“An Incident follows the Nadelman family from New York City to Maine as parents Philip and Lillian visit Joey, their puzzling, hard-to-handle son, at sleep-away camp. After greeting his parents with even more hostility than usual, Joey disappears. In the search for their son, Philip and Lillian expose the truth of their own relationship, and the full Nadelman family portrait, complete with shades of regret, recrimination, humor, and loss, is developed before our eyes.”
