Playwriting Residency Makes Successful Return at Ingleside Retirement Community

Playwriting Residency Makes Successful Return at Ingleside Retirement Community

On Tuesday, November 13, at 7:00pm in the Downs Cultural Arts Center, participating residents from Ingleside Retirement Apartments will share original memoir monologues and plays with an audience of family, residents, community members and Ingleside staff, in a presentation entitled "Recollections: An Evening of Readings". The playwriting program, made possible by a grant from The 1916 Foundation, is in its second phase after the overwhelming success of the initial pilot program. With performance titles ranging from "My Delaware Journey" to "Spiders!," each performer's work is the result of 10 weeks of intense script writing workshops led by Delaware Theatre Company's teaching artists. The opportunity to hone both the craft of playwriting and performance "educated, inspired, and strengthened our residents," according to Debbie Coates, Activities Director at Ingleside. In addition, the connections forged among fellow Ingleside members, staff, and community is invaluable.
