News   Thicker Than Water One of Four New Works Tested in Stamford's Fringe Fest of New Plays, Through May 1
Stamford Center for the Arts' Sixth Annual Fringe Festival of New Plays continues April 7 with the first performance of Eleanor Reissa's Thicker Than Water, one of four new plays in repertory through May 1.

The festival that features "new playwrights" and "new directors" in staged readings began April 3 at SCA's Rich Forum.

Codie K. Fitch directs Thicker Than Water by the award-winning playwright Reissa, who is also a respected actress, singer and Tony Award-nominated director. Her five-character play "examines how we, in the present, are affected by the ripples of the past in unexpected ways," according to production notes. "It follows the journey of three unrelated people who discover that their relatively isolated lives have been forcibly intertwined."

It plays April 7 at 8 PM, April 8 at 8 PM, April 9 at 8 PM, April 26 at 8 PM and April 27 at 8 PM.

The other Fringe Festival 2005 plays, playwrights, directors and performance dates are:

  • The 'D' Word by Susan Barsky, directed by Ted Lambert: April 10 at 2 PM, April 29 at 8 PM and April 30 at 8 PM.
  • Who's the Boss Now? by Heather Bucha, directed by Frank Whaley: April 19 at 8 PM, April 20 at 8 PM, April 24 at 2 PM, April 28 at 8 PM.
  • The Oysterman's House by Cybele Pascal, directed by George E. Moredock III: April 21 at 8 PM, April 22 at 8 PM, April 23 at 8 PM, May 1 at 2 PM.

Operating under the Actors' Equity Association Small Professional Theatre (SPT) contract, each new play in the Fringe Festival is presented with scripts in hand "as a true live theatre experience with minimal special effects, sets and few distractions."
