New Playwrights Festival: Readings From Aspiring Playwrights In St. Thomas
CHARLOTTE AMALIE — Staged readings will take place by island resident actors in St. Thomas on Saturday.
The readings have been gleaned from plays that were submitted for this year’s New Playwrights Festival at the Pistarckle Theater.
The event takes place Saturday at 7 p.m. at the Pistarckle Theater at Tillett Gardens in St. Thomas.
“It’s a great way to taste a slice of new plays, crafted by Virgin Islander playwrights,” organizers said.
For the past several years, a play from each of this readings was then produced in full, on-stage during Pistarckle’s regular season.
This year’s chosen plays are “Sorrow of the Sea Maidens” by Fengar Gael, and “Made In Heaven” by Steven Bogart.
Tickets are $15 per person for adults and $8 per child. They are available at the Pistarckle Theater or by calling (340) 775-7877.
