The Barbour Playwrights Award Begins with THE ANDREW PLAY

Article Pixel

The Barbour Playwrights Award begins on Wednesday, March 14 at 7 pm with a reading of Alexis Roblan's The Andrew Play. Andrew dies, suddenly. His little sister, Lena, is lost. His older sister, Kate, is pissed. A play about siblings, loss, the confusing poetry of grief, and who owns your memory when you're gone.

Directed by Dara Malina. Cast includes Matthew Dunivan, Regina Gibson, Lillian Isabella, Marty Keiser, Gina Manziello, Jennifer Wilson McGuire, Kate Middleton, and Jonathan Silver.

Doors open at 6:40 pm. Reading will be followed by a wine and cheese reception.

The Barbour Playwrights Award will continue on Wednesdays this month with readings of two new plays by writers from New Perspectives Theatre Company and their playwrighting program, The Women's Work Project. One of these three finalists will be awarded a prize of $500.

New Perspectives Theatre Company was founded in 1991 as a multi-racial ensemble dedicated to using theatre as an agent for positive social change. Their mission is to develop and present new plays and playwrights, particularly women and people of color; present classic plays in a style that sheds new light on our lives and work; and present theatre to under-served audiences- especially young people and communities in need- to build life skills and promote participation in our society.

The Episcopal Actors' Guild was established in 1923 and is a charitable organization offering emergency assistance and career support to professional performers "of all faiths, and none." We also host a full calendar of events and fundraisers including concerts, variety shows, play readings, and professional workshops. Learn more at
