Eventide Theatre Company presents an entirely new way to enjoy original plays written by local playwrights that are read by Cape Cod actors.
Join us on our Facebook page on Saturday, October 24th at 4:00 p.m. or Sunday, October 25th @ 2:00 pm as we open the virtual curtain again for Eventide’s Virtual Playhouse, featuring a regional premiere by local playwright, Lee Roscoe.
We’ll be debuting her new work – Impossible? – a serious satire about the rise of a tyrannical president and how this impacts friends in a small New England town. The play is a ferocious, funny, and tragic look at how hyperbolized madness at the national level has real consequences in people’s lives.
The Virtual Playhouse will be a bi-weekly reading of new plays, being performed on weekends that alternate with the current Eventide Talesprogram. The Virtual Playhouse will also feature experienced directors trying a new virtual medium, as well as up-and-coming directors testing the waters.
So mark your calendar for Saturday, October 24th at 4:00 or Sunday, October 25th @ 2:00 and join us via the blue button below. Then grab a beverage, make yourself comfortable – and enjoy our second Virtual Playhouse!
Eventide’s Featured Playwright – Lee Roscoe
Lee Roscoe is an award-winning playwright whose plays have been seen from NYC to the Cape, including Provincetown Theater, Playwrights Theater Boston, Tilden Arts Center, The Living Theatre – NYC, and heard on public radio in San Francisco and Boston. Her play, “The Mooncusser’s Tale” premiered on Cape Cod’s WOMR. Lee’s themes are often about how the ills of the world at large affect the human heart, and her styles vary from realism, to satire, to groundbreakingly abstract and imaginative.
An Equity actress who trained at HB Studio and Circle in the Square, Lee worked backstage at several Off-Broadway theaters, and later onstage Off-Broadway. She is a long-time journalist published widely on the Cape, regionally and nationally – and is a published poet.
