New Script Series – July 2019

July 13, 2019 @ 2:00 pm

Focal Theatre Lab is featuring THREE brand new plays by local playwrights for our March 2019 New Script Series!

Olivia Ann Griffith’s SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS is a lighthearted take on grief, highlighting a mother and son’s struggle to deal with the misguided sympathies of outlandish funeral guests.

Sam Rude’s DREAM OR ILLUSION? is an introspective look at high school and relationships in the technological age, starring a generation thrust into a spiraling pool that “it’s complicated” can’t even start to explain.

In Emily Heckle’s SWIPED, two college friends navigate the extremes of online dating, digital communication, and demanding respect in a culture of new technology and swiping.

Join us for a reading of these new plays and a talkback with Sam, Olivia, and Emily to follow. The event is free and open to the public. Find us in the Rotary Room of Ames Public Library (up the stairs and to the left) at 2:00 p.m.! Doors open at 1:45 p.m.
