EVELYN-IN-PURGATORY-20010101Teachers with an i.d. will be offered complimentary tickets to tonight's July 5th preview performance of EVELYN IN PURGATORY, a World Premiere production of Topher Payne's prize-winning drama about public school teachers. Essential Theatre Festival, 887 W. Marietta St., Atlanta, GA 30318

The Essential Theatre offers a free ticket (and a complimentary glass of wine) for the July 5 Preview performance of its World Premiere production of Topher Payne’s EVELYN IN PURGATORY, a prize-winning drama about public school teachers. Topher’s play won the 2012 Essential Theatre Playwriting Award for best play written by a Georgia resident. Set in the infamous “rubber room” of New York City’s public school system, the playwright describes it as being “like The Breakfast Club for teachers.”

The Preview performance will be at 8 p.m. on July 5 in the Actor’s Express theatre space located in the King Plow Art Center. Teachers with an i.d. will be admitted for free and can receive a complimentary glass of wine (which can be taken into the theatre). Reservations cannot be made in advance for these free admissions, so come early!

Five public school teachers are caught in the limbo of the disciplinary “Rubber Room”, waiting for their cases to be heard and their fates decided. Poignant and funny drama, it’s like The Breakfast Club for teachers, as they share secrets with each other and begin to look into their own hearts.For more information watch a brief video of the playwright discussing the play with his director, Betty Hart at http://www.EssentialTheatre.com.

The Essential Theatre is a non-profit 501(c)3 professional, theatre company is dedicated to nurturing new work by Georgia playwrights and giving Atlanta audiences the opportunity to enjoy exciting world and regional premieres.
