News   Leslie Ayvazian's Badcat Staged in Cape Cod, July 20-22
 
Leslie Ayvazian's Badcat is the third offering of the Cape Cod Theatre Project's 2006 summer season of play readings.

Starring will be Judith Roberts, Barbara Garrick, Peter Rini, Brenda Currin, Hal Robinson and Frank Deal.

The new work asks, "When you're unhappy with the role you are playing in your marriage, why not make a drastic change?" Actress Blair Brown, who directed Ayvazian's Lovely Day Off-Broadway, was originally slated to stage the work. She is no longer attached to the project. Dates are July 20-22.

Concluding the season will be a play directed by CCTP artistic director, Andrew Polk: Have You Seen Steve Steven? by Ann Marie Healy. In it, "Mary and Frank are having a dinner party with some neighbors they never met, reminiscing about some times they never had. Their two children are trying to find the exit to a door they never opened. It's a long, cold night in outer suburbia, if they could only remember the way home." Dates are July 27-29.

The 12-year-old CCTP has developed a reputation for nurturing plays that eventually find their way Off-Broadway. Just this past season alone, New York has seen Manuscript by Paul Grellong, Almost, Maine by John Cariani and BFE by Julia Cho, all developed at one point at the Falmouth company.

The summer theatre festival rehearses (in a brief process) and offers readings of new works each July. The company is stationed in Falmouth in the southwest corner of Cape Cod, and performs out of The Falmouth Academy, a private school. Though the company never stages full productions and makes no bones about its plays being in a state of development, the season has become quite popular with the local populace.
