Basement Arts Presents: THE OPPORTUNIST by Dic Edwards on October 20th
Basement Arts is collaborating with the dramatist by doing a staged reading of this draft, which will be filmed and sent to him. A staged reading has minimal lights and sound, only a few rehearsals and the actors will have their scripts in hand.
"The audience is vital at this stage of development for their constructive critical response, which will be helpful to the dramatist in the development of the play. The dramatist will make changes to the play and hopefully give us another crack at a new draft at a later date.
This sort of collaboration with a major dramatist is unusual, and so is the timing of the play in regards to its subject matter. This December will be the 50th of the assassination."
