Long Beach Playhouse New Works Festival 2009 Features Unprepared Mustard
2009-04-22 · By Editor
“Though the mustard is unprepared, this new work has enough beef to carry it.”
Long Beach Playhouse produces staged readings to assist established and emerging playwrights develop their work through the New Works Festival. The development of these works can culminate in full scale productions in the Studio or Mainstage Theatre. Previous works included in past Studio Seasons include Spinelli, Scales of Justice, Hattie and The Quality of Light.
The next new work on stage is Unprepared Mustard by Chris Booz and is directed by Caprice Spencer Rothe. The play is centered on the unlikely pairing of a reclusive writer and a homeless man. The two characters meet, and through critical and sarcastic conversation break down life-long barriers that awaken both lives.
Staged readings are performed at The Long Beach Playhouse Mainstage Theatre at 5021 E. Anaheim Street in Long Beach. Unprepared Mustard will be performed on April 25th, 2009. Admission is a $10 donation and includes a post-reading discussion. Two more plays will be part of the New Works Festival 2009, Three Feet Back by John Barry and The Vinegar Syndrome by Paul Sambol. Staged readings begin at 2:00 p.m. on the last Saturday of each month during the spring.
Also join us for our newest project, Cold Table Readings, which will include works of other finalists of the New Works Festival. Readings are every third Sunday of the month. For more information please visit www.lbph.com.
