Williamston Theatre Presents DARK NIGHTS IN BILLTOWN, Now thru 5/3
Williamston Theatre is excited to announce that Dark Nights in Billtown, a series of readings staged in alternative spaces, is returning today, May 1st-3rd.
"Dark nights" is the term used when a theatre doesn't have a play running on stage, as the hot and intense stage lights are out, leaving the space dark. Artistic Director Tony Caselli and Artistic Associate Lynn Lammers look to this "dark" time as an opportunity to use alternate spaces in the Williamston Theatre building in creative ways. Dark Nights in Billtown is an intimate, informal, bare-bones affair with free popcorn and fellowship.
This year, Dark Nights in Billtown will feature three plays that raise questions around the struggles of young people today. What does it mean to come of age in the 21st Century? In a time known for mass shootings and online bullying, how are millenials finding ways to connect and survive? And what are the ways in which this generation's experiences align with how other generations experienced growing up?
The three plays featured in Dark Nights in Billtown include:
Ride by Eric Lane, tonight, May 1, 2014 at 8pm
Edith Can Shoot Things and Hit Them by A. Rey Pamatmat, Friday, May 2, 2014 at 8pm
Evie's Waltz by Carter W. Lewis, Saturday, May 3, 2014 at 8pm
