CP2 Series Readers Theatre “In A Word” Written by Lauren Yee and Directed by Christine Crawfis
WAPPINGERS FALLS, NY – County Players, one of the longest running community theatre companies in the area will present the final selection in the CP2 Series Readers Theatre for this season with a reading of the drama by Lauren Yee, “IN A WORD” on Saturday, March 7 at 8:00p.m. & Sunday, March 8 at 2pm. Tickets are $10 general admission.
Today is the two-year anniversary of Fiona’s son’s disappearance, and still, nothing makes sense to her. As Fiona delves back into her memories of that fateful day, to uncover that crucial missing piece, grief and comedy collide, and ordinary turns of phrase take on dangerous new meanings.
The cast includes the local talents of Kevin Archambault, MaryBeth Boylan, Rick Meyer, Alex Petrova, Lisa Sabin. and Bruce Pileggi. Director Crawfis says: “The story and the relationships among the characters in this play are earthy, human, and genuine. On top of that, playwright Lauren Yee gives us very contemporary storytelling and a play that features language in an intriguingly theatrical way. Working on this play is like playing a game or solving a puzzle. Finding clues and pulling at threads of ideas.”
This is the second year for CP2 Readers Theatre, an exciting series at County Players. It offers an opportunity for actors, directors, and audience members to experience theater in a fresh way, with full dramatic readings of selected plays. No costumes, no sets, no props, and the actors perform with scripts in hand. These shows are an incredible opportunity to experience great theater stripped to its essence: the playwright’s words.
