BODY AWARENESS is a wonderful send-up on what a week of sensitive cultural programming looks like on a college campus in upstate Vermont.
We’re doing our own version of complementary programming around our hit production of Annie Baker’s play by bringing back all 5 commissioned projected from our first Locally Grown Festival to hear the latest iterations of each respective play during the run of BODY AWARENESS.
Today a packed DCJCC library crowd heard the latest version of Jon Spelman’s THE PROSTATE DIALOGUES (with the newly added extra “AND TALES OF THE TELLYWACKER”). It was yet another wonderful experience—profoundly funny and human and just a wonderful journey for all.
Several brand new students from the University of Michigan, California at Berkeley and Merced and Notre Dame were at the reading. We may be hearing from them in the comment section of this posting. I’ll be introducing this class to our blog readers officially very soon–talking about the course and the amazing integration of these students into the life of our theater over the next 4 months. All 17 students will become subscribers for the fall and see everything we do. The readings are optional.
Tomorrow, everyone–students and non-students alike–are invited to the Kennedy Center’s Page to Stage Festival to hear and see Jacqueline Lawton’s THE HAMPTON YEARS at 3 pm. To read much more about this exciting opportunity to hear the latest draft—quite literally hot off the printer–go to our playwright’s website and blog. You’ll get to read some amazing material about the real-life subject matters brought so vividly to life by our playwright, and very soon, by our dynamic cast and our director, Shirley Serotsky.
Look forward to reading thoughts from our audience below about THE PROSTATE DIALOGUES.
