Join us in Quimby Park for our second singular talent performance: Red Hot Patriot: The Kick-ass Wit of Molly Ivins featuring Beth Daily recently retired acting professor from Plymouth State University. The play is written by Margaret and Allison Engel.
The story follows Molly Ivins, a newspaper columnist and best-selling author. Ivins was a sharp-tongued wit who took on the political establishment and the "good ol' boys" with her unforgettable humor and wisdom. Written by twin sisters, who were longtime journalists themselves, the play celebrates Ivins' courage and tenacity - even when the country wasn't listening.
The performance will be August 1st at 5:30 in Quimby Park. No reservations required; $15 donation suggested Seating on the ground will be provided; please feel free to bring your own lawn chairs.
The Studio Series consists of four readings offered throughout the summer that are directed and read by ATTP’s exceptional company of actors and directors, and then offered to our community for by donation admission. These readings are an opportunity to workshop in-progress work, and sometimes the audience is invited stay after the reading for a Q & A session to share their responses directly with the playwright. All work produced in the reading series is then considered as possible options for Second Stage productions, completely dependent on audience feedback.
