Playwright Francine Volpe will see her play, Stars, given a workshop production at Off-Broadway's Soho Rep, March 7-10. Linsay Firman, an associate of the Downtown theatre, will direct. Stars uses a true case of teenage sexual brutality to examine the "subtle violence present in all relationships." Volpe was part of Soho Rep's 1999-2000 Playwriting Lab. Stars will run for four performances.
Soho Rep recently concluded its run of Mac Wellman's riff on the Don Juan myth, Cat's Paw. Soho Rep is located at 46 Walker Street. For more information, call (212) 479-7979.
