Playwrights Announced for Stable Cable Lab Co.'s 4th Annual LIVEWIRE Event
Stable Cable Lab Co. will present the fourth annual LiveWire: An Evening of New Short Plays on Sunday, August 20 at Bar Uni in Greenpoint (674 Manhattan Ave, Brooklyn, NY). Doors will open at 6pm for drinks and the performance will begin at 7pm. Tickets ($15 in advance, $20 at the door) are available online at www.stablecablelabco.org/tickets.
Each year, Stable Cable seeks out promising up and coming literary voices to write a brand new short play inspired by a theme.
This year's theme is "The World of Tomorrow" and will feature ten-minute plays by Nat Cassidy, Emily Daly, Nelson Diaz-Marcano, Lillith Fallon, Amy Gijsbers van Wijk, and Collin McConnell. The evening will also feature guest musicians, Benny and Griff, who were born from an egg on the magical island of Umbachtu, and have made it their life's purpose to bring joy to the world with their musical and comedic talents.
The fourth annual LiveWire: An Evening of New Short Plays will launch and serve as a fundraiser for Stable Cable's 2017-18 Season, featuring new works by Stephen Brown and Tim Pinckney as part of the inaugural Static: An Intergenerational Playwrights Experiment on December 14-17, 2017 at IRT Theater, and the world premiere of Max Baker's Hal & Bee directed by Sarah Norris, in association with New Light Theater Project from March 10-31, 2018 at an acclaimed upper east side theater to be announced.
