Play With Your Food – Spring 2015

Begins Friday, February 20, 7:00pm

The series features local and regional playwrights' original scripts for staged, workshop readings in the Studio Theatre of the Tilden Arts Center on the West Barnstable campus. This series' authors include current students, alumni and developing playwrights from Cape Cod, Boston, and New York.

The readings are designed to provide the writers feedback on their work. Audience members are encouraged to share their thoughts during the "talk back" sessions with the playwrights, directors, and actors, that occurs at the end of each evening.

Admission is FREE with a donation of a non-perishable good that will be donated to a local food pantry. Performances begin at 7:00pm.

According to CCCC Performing Arts Coordinator and series producer Vana Trudeau, "These stories reflect the challenges we face in society, including addiction and recovery, race, sexual orientation, body image, the nature of love, and our ability (or lack thereof) to maintain control in our rapidly changing world. I'm sure each evening will provoke lively discussions."

With the generous support from a grant awarded by the Cape Cod Foundation, the "Play With Your Food" series is pleased to be able to offer each chosen playwright a monetary stipend in honor of their selection. Audience members may also enter a door prize drawing each evening to win a pair of tickets to an upcoming local theatre event, again made possible through the Cape Cod Foundation support.
