A Collaborative Theater Project
May 05, Sep 08, Nov 03 at 7:30 pm
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.
Dates of the performances are scheduled for May 5, August 4, November 3, 2014; and February 2, 2015 (Dates subject to change). A festival of all four plays will be scheduled at the completion of the cycle.
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.
About the playwrights:
Susan Kosoff got her start in theatre at the Harwich Junior Theatre, mentored by Betty Bobp. She is the founder and long-time producer of Wheelock Family Theatre; professor emerita of theatre and education at Wheelock College, where she continues to teach for the Center for International Programs and Partnerships; and a member of the board of StageSource, New England’s alliance for theatre artists and producers. She has written many plays, which have been produced at theatres around the country. Among her recent ten-minute plays, Waiting for Gretchen appears in the Boston Theater Marathon XI 2009 Anthology. Other writing for the theatre includes The Young Actor’s Book of Improvisation, A Little Princess, Let There Be Light, O Happy Day, and The Beanstalk, the Giant, and Jack. Susan has directed numerous plays. Among her favorites are Lord of the Flies, Inherit the Wind, The Crucible, Holes, and A Tale of Two Cities.
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.

Bronwen Prosser is a Cape Cod native, actor and playwright who graduated from New York’s Atlantic Acting School. Her hit one woman show The Make-Out Queen was raucously applauded by New York and Cape Cod critics alike. She is currently co-writing a new play in tandem with Edward Albee fellow Danny Mitarotondo. Bronwen has been awarded best actress for her role in Lisa Robinson’s filmBreaker, and was a founding member of the New York Theatre Company The Common Tongue as well as the Cape Cod Burlesque Troupe The Brazen Belles.
