Works by Halley Feiffer, Joshua Harmon, Michael West & Joe Tracz Set for MTC's Ernst C. Stiefel Reading Series
April 7 at 11AM: THE CHINESE ROOM by Michael West
Frank has dedicated his life to the development of Artificial Intelligence. When his company decides to dispense with his services - and his research, the line between his life's work and his life turns out to be blurrier than it appears. A moving and complex thriller about love and just how far we will go to keep it alive. The Chinese Room was commissioned by MTC through the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
April 7 at 4PM: HAPPY PLACE by Joe Tracz, directed by Carolyn Cantor
Caroline is determined to plan the best trip possible for her family vacation to Disney World. When she hires a handicapped woman to help them cut the lines, she sets into motion a series of events that none of them could have anticipated. A compelling drama about the questions and complexities behind the Happiest Place on Earth.
Joe Tracz's plays have been developed at Second Stage, Roundabout, Ars Nova, and the Flea. His musical adaptation of the first book in the popular Percy Jackson series The Lightning Thief will premiere at the Lortel Theatre this summer.
