Essential Theatre to Stage INDEPENDENT by John D. Babcock III

Essential Theatre to Stage INDEPENDENT by John D. Babcock III

Join Essential Theatre for a very special presentation of Independent, by John D. Babcock III, performing for two nights only, August 17 and 18, as part of the Essential Theatre Play Festival.

Portraying the story of actor/director John Cassavetes and the events which led him to become the single most important figure in American Independent films, Independent stars local actor Dan Triandiflou as actor/director John Cassavetes, Godfather of American independent films.

Since the beginning of the festival in 1999, The Essential Theatre has committed to producing at least one new play a year by a Georgia playwright. Essential began its annual Essential Theatre Playwriting Competition in 2001, strengthening its ties to local writers by establishing the only competition exclusively dedicated to playwrights residing in the state of Georgia. This summer marks the 19th annual Essential Theatre Festival.
