Dixon Place has a new series, Page to Stage, featuring plays in progress. They write: A forum for plays in development, Page to Stage is in essence a “spiffed-up, tricked out” staged reading series (with basic added admin and tech support.) Writers are encouraged to submit 20-40 minute excerpts of their pieces to present on a shared bill with two to three other artists, cultivating more audience and feedback.
On the bill tonight: Julia Pearlstein presents Weep Screed, a farce-in-progress about a life in retrograde. Travis Stewart presents Tall Tales (and Counterfeit Codices), a collection of short humor pieces in the grand American tradition of preposterous yarn spinning (think Mark Twain, Artemus Ward/ P.T. Barnum) enacted by the author like Dickens on methamphetamine. 8:00pm Tickets: $10.
