Four Squared: "Along The River Road" by Candace Perry

May 25 at 7:30 pm

4Squared Logo With generous support from the Kaplan Foundation, Cotuit Center for the Arts announces a new collaboration designed to workshop four original plays by four local playwrights over the course of one year.  Theater partners include Cotuit Center for the Arts, Harwich Junior Theatre, Provincetown Theater, and Woods Hole Theater Company. Each work will be presented in staged readings four times, once each season over the course of a year, in four venues from the upper Cape to the lower Cape, reaching four different audiences.  The partners each invited a local playwright and asked that they pen a new full length play for up to six actors. Readings will take place in the four theaters simultaneously, the first with each playwright in the “home” of their presenter, then rotating between the four venues. Featured playwrights are Bronwen Prosser (Cotuit Center for the Arts), Susan Kosoff (Harwich Junior Theatre),  Candace Perry (Provincetown Theater) and Joe Richards (Woods Hole Theater Company).  The program is funded by generous support from the Kaplan Foundation. Candace Perry is a writer, activist, and social worker who holds the audacious hope that her plays might change the world.  She’s written three full length plays and thirty short plays.  Her full length play, Meridian Summer, received the 2007 Cape Cod Playwrights/Kaplan Prize.   Her short plays have been developed with the Provincetown Theater and many have also been produced by other companies/competitions, including the Boston Theater Marathon, New Orleans Tennessee Williams Festival, Women’s International Theater Festival (Provincetown), Double Take Fringe Festival (Greenfield, MA), Theatre Southwest (Houston, TX), and Heartland Theatre Company (Normal, IL).  For several years she’s taught a community education class on writing the short play.  She’s a member of the Provincetown Theater’s Playwrights’ Lab and the Dramatists Guild. More information is available on her website, www.candaceperryplaywright.com. The final reading of ALONG THE RIVER ROAD, a new play by Candace Perry, returns home to The Provincetown Theater. The play takes place on a Louisiana plantation in 2011 and 1811. A free event.

"Lonely Planet" by Steve Dietz

May 26 - May 30, Jun 03 - Jun 06 at 7:30 pm
May 31, Jun 07 at 3:00 pm

LP-web-logos     The Provincetown Theater is proud to present ‘Lonely Planet’, a play by Steven Dietz, directed by Francis Kelly, and starring Joe MacDougall* & John Long*. Lonely Planet tells the story of two friends, Jody and Carl, who use humor and their own sense of absurdity to navigate the turbulent world at the height of the AIDS crisis. Focusing on the lives and friendship of Jody and Carl, ‘Lonely Planet’ manages to capture the essence of an important moment in our history in an understated yet powerful theatrical event. “Lonely Planet is written with compassion and concern; Dietz has known his unfair share of young people who died well before their time, and his sorrow clearly motivates the play.” –Chicago Reader “To describe Lonely Planet as an “AIDS play” is accurate yet incomplete. It is really more of a story about friendship and its importance in a troubling world.”-DC Theatre Scene

SEX TIPS FOR STRAIGHT WOMEN FROM A GAY MAN

Aug 03 - Aug 08 at 8:00 pm

sextipslogo   In this hilarious new three-character comedy based on the best-selling book of the same title, audiences are welcomed into a fun-filled world of foolproof moves and insider advice that could only be culled from that most insightful of individuals: the gay man. The play is set at a local university auditorium where the English Department holds its monthly meet the authors event. Robyn is the shy and studious moderator of the event and this month's featured author is Dan Anderson of Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man. The third character is a hunky stage assistant of Eastern European descent, Stefan. Thwarting Robyn's attempts to moderate a scholarly discussion of the book, Dan aims to entertain those in attendance with a highly theatrical, audience-interactive sex tip seminar. Will the power of Dan's tips prove too titillating for even Robyn to resist? Will Stefan's muscles be used for more than moving heavy scenery? As with everything at this event...that is for Dan to know, and you to find out! TICKETS WET ZONE $69 (First 3 rows. Includes one free drink!) GENERAL $59/$49 Students $3.50 Ticket Handling Fee is added to all tickets no matter point of purchase.
