Art in the Garden

Written by cecelia on May 19th, 2012

The interns at the Alabama Shakespeare Festival read the three plays that won the Youth Southern Writers’ Project.

The plays that were read in the garden next to the Festival on a beautiful sunny afternoon were: Light in My Darkness by Shejuti Paul, Jenny by Ivy Kilpatrick and Solitude by Gabrielle Lindley.

There is still time to buy tickets to CYCLOPS: A Rock Opera which is this evening at 11 p.m. And don’t forget tomorrow’s final production in the Festival of Plays for the Southern Writers’ Workshop, Concessions by Brian Richard Mori.

Sparks fly when the lives of three married couples become entangled in this hilarious,sexy comedy of outrageous infidelity and revenge. As the 2000 Presidential election results unfold, so do the laughs. Did the Russians really fix the 1984 Olympics? IsGuam even a state? And who the heck has won Florida? Come see this side-splitting comedy which asks the question: can love survive its toughest opponent – marriage?

The play begins at 10:30 a.m. in the Octagon Theatre. Tickets are $10 and can still be purchased at the door.
