The Barbour Playwrights Award Continues With MOMMY'S LITTLE PRINCESS

The Barbour Playwrights Award Continues With MOMMY'S LITTLE PRINCESS

The Barbour Playwrights Award continues on Wednesday, March 28 at 7pm with a reading of Teresa Lotz's Mommy's Little Princess. In Mommy's Little Princess, Ingrid, her boyfriend, and her new roommate find a unique way to play house, upending our notions of relationship "norms" and the definition of family. Directed by Daniella Caggiano, the cast includes Cynthia Bastidas, Azalea Lewis, Kevin Hoffman, and Isabella Schiller. Doors open at 6:40 pm. The reading will be followed by a wine and cheese reception.

Now in its eleventh year, the Barbour Playwrights Award was created to celebrate new work for the theatre. Every March, the Episcopal Actors' Guild (EAG) partners with a local theatre company or playwriting program to present staged readings of new work, with one playwright being awarded a prize of $500. This year's partner is New Perspectives Theatre Company and their Women's Work Project. Lotz is one of three finalists for the 2018 Barbour Playwrights Award. Past winners have included Lynn Rosen, Laura Eason, Aaron Jafferis, and Bill Cosgriff.

The final reading of this year's Barbour Award will be Sandra A. Daley-Sharif's Straddling the Edge. Originally scheduled for Wednesday, March 21, this reading was rescheduled due to inclement weather. It will now take place on Wednesday, April 4 at 7pm.
