Last night (Nov 12) FireWorks 2014 kicked off with the first meeting of the group of writers selected to participate in a Playwrights’ Intensive with Maja Ardal.
Tonight is the opening of the first play, Catherine Frid’s drama Burying Toni, directed by Ginette Mohr. It features Glenda Romano as Emma Jung (yes, wife of psychoanalyst Carl), and Natalie Kulesza and Jillian Welsh as elements of her personality.
The two FireWorks plays are running in repertory (alternating performances), so tomorrow – Friday – will be the opening night for a madcap comedy by Ramona Baillie and Maria Popoff, You Have To Earn It, directed by Jennifer Radford. In keeping with the play’s 1930s influence, filmmaker Nicholas Porteous created this great black & white teaser. Enjoy! http://youtu.be/JFF5khWINgE
FireWorks runs to Nov 29 – check http://www.alumnaetheatre.com/fireworks.html for the schedule. Running time of each play is approx. 70 minutes.
