Previews for Women's Project Theater's THE MOST DESERVING with Veanne Cox & More Begin 3/30
Ms. Trieschmann's third play for Women's Project Theater (crooked and How The World Began), Julie Crosby, Producing Artistic Director, opens Tuesday, April 8, at 7:30pm for a run through May 4. The Most Deserving is directed by Shelley Butler.
Veanne Cox, Adam LeFevre, Jennifer Lim, Kristin Griffith, Daniel Pearce and Ray Anthony Thomas play the residents of a small Kansas town with an arts council charged with giving away the largest individual artist grant in its history. The choice seems easy until a professor from the local community college makes a case for an unconventional outsider, causing art to collide with sex, class, and politics.
Catherine Trieschmann's plays, in addition to crooked and How The World Began include The Bridegroom of Blowing Rock, Hot Georgia Sunday and The Most Deserving. Her work has been produced Off-Broadway at Women's Project Theater, Bush Theatre (London), Out of Joint at the Arcola Theatre (London), South Coast Repertory, Milwaukee Repertory Theatre, the Denver Theater Center, and Florida Stage, among others. She has received commissions from South Coast Repertory, Manhattan Theatre Club, and the Denver Theatre Center. She is the recipient of the Weissberger Award, the Otis Guernsey New Voices Playwriting Award from the Inge Theatre Festival, and the Edgerton New Play Award. The Most Deserving was originally developed and produced at the Denver Center Theatre Company, Kent Thompson, Artistic Director.
Ms. Trieschmann also wrote the screenplay for the film Angel's Crest released by Magnolia Pictures. Originally from Athens, Georgia, she now lives in a small town in western Kansas that may have an arts council.
The scenery for The Most Deserving is by David Barber, costumes by Donald Sanders, lighting by Traci Klainer Polimeni and sound by Leon Rothenberg.
