BWW Review: Circle Players' OF MICE AND MEN
by Jeffrey Ellis - Nov 1, 2015

In Of Mice and Men, writer John Steinbeck relates the tale of two lifelong friends whose hard-scrabble lives are played out against the backdrop of the Great Depression: two men whose bleak existence is made even more challenging by the cruel realities of the world at that time. Since its publication in 1937, Steinbeck's slim novella has inspired artists to offer different interpretations of the story - to varying degrees of success, to be certain - including numerous film versions, a Carlisle Floyd opera, ballets and stage productions, including a recent Broadway run and, closer to home, a production now onstage from Middle Tennessee's oldest community theater organization.

Andrea N. Carr Releases THE TREES OUTSIDE
by BWW News Desk - Jul 8, 2015

Often as human beings we find ourselves on the outside looking in on a given situation: a friend's problems with work, the death of a distant relative, even watching police rush to a major car accident. However, one of the most difficult aspects of humanity is being able to look within ourselves and be honest about what we see there. The Trees Outside is an introspective look at those forces affecting the character Angel Harper, from Andrea N. Carr's debut novel Family Tree the Novel: Family Tree. Here, she not only helps readers look introspectively at Angel's life through her poetry and previously edited material, but she reveals The Naked Truth about her writing as a medium for self-expression. 'This is a must read for all readers new or familiar with Family Tree the Novel. Miss Carr bears her soul and that of Angel's in a truly enlightening short work.' - M.J. Moores, OCT Book Details: 'The Trees Outside' By Andrea N. Carr Published: 06/01/2015 ASIN: The Trees Outside Pages: 19 Genre: Literary Fiction, African-American Fiction, Philosophy About The Author: Andrea N. Carr is a born storyteller. Her soul carries the passions and disappointments of a nation and her writing bares faultless witness to the truths of our time. Her profound insights into the human condition echo Alice Munro, The Color Purple and J.D. Salinger's Catcher in the Rye. With pace that has been compared to Raymond Carver. This new indie author has been writing emotionally driven, self-exploratory stories since 1999 from her homes in Orange County. Growing up in Huntington Beach, she later moved to Los Angeles California after leaving a Mental Health Career, as a Psychiatric Technician for the State of CA. Miss Carr now resides in Joshua Tree, CA after living in Malaga, Spain where she finished her debut title. For review copies, author interviews, or more information please contact: Andrea N.

MARY'S WEDDING to Run 1/28-2/21 at Malibu Playhouse
by BWW News Desk - Jan 20, 2016

"Mary's Wedding" premiers January 28 - February 21, 2016 at the Malibu Playhouse, officially launching their 2016 season under the helm of Jeremy Skidmore, world-renowned theater director and formerly Artistic Director of Theater Alliance in Washington, D.C.  Written by Stephen Massicotte and performed by Hallie Cooper and Mark Jude Sullivan, "MARY'S WEDDING," produced and directed by Skidmore, is a brilliant, romantic and historical dream play. When Mary and Charlie unexpectedly find one another sheltered in a barn during a thunderstorm, a tentative love is born. But the year is 1914, and their first flirtations ignite right as World War I begins to engulf the western world.  Nevertheless, their bond begins to fracture the hard rules of time as their story unfolds across vast prairies, on the decks of silently sailing war ships, and entwined with the chaotic trenches of Europe's no-man's land.  Mary's Wedding captures an extraordinary moment of innocence and courage with rare sensitivity and beauty.

The body confident Bev, a perfect fit for Melinda Ryan who drove every moment home, is finding her way toward a loving relationship. Trisha, enthusiastically played by Hayley Flowers, is finding her way toward a more loving relationship with herself.

Rounding out the group is the older Sarah, who is revealed to be handling a relapse of breast cancer, Jeannie Gee giving the highlight performance of the piece as a complete natural. Shaping and narrating the action is their unconventional pole teacher Gabby.
