Conversations: Six by Six 

by Susan Kosoff

A reading of a work in progress. Free event. 4squared_logo Four Squared 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).
Feb 2 - Provincetown Theater performs River Road in Woods Hole.
Feb. 16 - Harwich Junior Theater performs at Provincetown Theater.
May 25- Provincetown Theater performns River Road at Provincetown Theater.
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.
