Theatre Conspiracy’s Playwright Group Announces Play Reading Series

Our resident theatre company, Theatre Conspiracy, is committed to producing and promoting the work of the next generation of great playwright. This series will highlight the work of 6 local playwrights. Readings will be presented in the Foulds Theatre at the Alliance for the Arts.

Theatre Conspiracy’s playwright group is made of playwrights from across southwest Florida. The group meets each Monday to read a member’s work and provide feedback on the script. The conclusion of the years of public readings gives the playwrights a chance to see their work performed in front of a live audience. A question and answer session follows each reading, providing the playwright unique feedback.

The first work presented will be “The Afterlife of Swans” by Louise Wigglesworth on Jan. 23 at 8 p.m. In The Afterlife of Swans, all the technological fail-safes have backfired. At 2:30 a.m. Manhattan is blacked out and without phone service. Two women are trapped in a theatre as something violent rages outside.

The series will continue of Feb. 13 at 18 p.m. with two one-act plays. In The First Step by Bob Maxeiner, a young wife finds the job of her dreams, but it carries a condition. Tinker’s Vision by Wally Kain tells the story of a brilliant young atheist that has a religious vision.
