Dear Friends…

Community by community, the impact of COVID-19 is variable and changing. We are all in this together. As a year-round not-for-profit, the staff and board of the Provincetown Theater are dedicated to our community’s well-being in every sense of the word. In doing so, we are canceling the two remaining free play readings this month in our Winter Play Dates series on March 17 & 24.

For events and performances scheduled later this spring, please visit our website for updates. Provincetowntheater.org

Most important, we hope and pray you’ll take extra good care of yourself during these uncertain times. If you feel ill, please stay home to rest and recover. We promise we will be here when you feel better!

And as always, we are grateful for your support of the Provincetown Theater, and wish you all the best health in the world!

Free Play Reading, “Squall”

A new psychological thriller by Elizabeth Hemmerdinger, featuring August: Osage County stars Vanessa Rose & Anne Stott.

On Tuesday, February 25th at 7pm, our Winter Play Dates New Full-Length Play Reading Series presents Squall, a gripping tale of two women trapped together on a storm-torn island off the coast of Maine.

Directed by Winter Play Dates co-curator Gary Garrison, Squall is a new play written by Elizabeth Hemmerdinger. The reading will be followed by a talkback with the playwright. Free to the Public — thanks in part to a generous grant from the Arts Foundation of Cape Cod — seating is on a first come/first serve basis. Cash bar open throughout the evening. Doors open at 6:30pm.


THE 24 HOUR PLAYS turn 10

Featuring 21 Cape Cod actors to interpret them, these fresh-off-the-desk works will be rehearsed, staged and tech’d (in just 12 hours!) by directors David Drake, Bart J. Murell, Steven Myerson, Megan Nussle, Candace Perry, Judith Underwood and Margaret Van Sant, respectively. A not-to-be-missed Outer Cape community event, tickets for Saturday night’s 7:30pm performance of The 24 Hour Plays – as well as Sunday’s “Encore Matinee” at 2pm on Feb 16 – can be obtained here.
