09 Jan 2014
Annie Golden, Caitlin Diana Doyle and Jonathan W. Colby will appear in a free staged reading of Stopgap, a new play by Danielle Mohlman, Jan. 28 at Snapple Theatre Studios.
CEW Productions, the producers of the Off-Broadway musical Mama and Her Boys, present the reading, which will begin at 4:30 PM.
Directed by Ethan Paulini, Stopgap features Doyle (Shakespeare Theatre's Mrs. Warren's Profession), Colby (Arena Stage's You Nero), Golden (Xanadu, The Full Monty), James Penca, Travis Blumer and Mary Katelin Ward.
Stopgap, according to press notes, "centers around a young woman who 'opts for the concreteness of motherhood when everything else in her life is muddy' in a town where white picket fence and 2.5 kids has long been the norm, a prospective single mother, her best friend and his husband try to find their own definitions of 'family.'"
Stopgap was first produced by Field Trip Theatre, as part of the 2012 Capital Fringe Festival in Washington, D.C., and was a finalist for the 2012 Larry Neal Writers' Award for Dramatic Writing, awarded by the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities.
Snapple Theatre Studios is located at 210 W. 50th Street, 4th Floor. To reserve free tickets, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
