Summer on the Patio – Open Rehearsals

The Artistic Home is inviting the public to share in their process of play selection this summer by offering free admission each weekend to staged readings and open rehearsals of three contemporary plays. Dubbed SUMMER ON THE  PATIO, the series will include the plays MUD by María Irene Fornés, a contemporary classic delving into poverty and emancipatory feminism that is ultimately undercut; IRONBOUND by Martyna Majok, an intimate story of an immigrant woman’s fight to survive in the United States; and THE PAVILION by Craig Wright, an existential treatise on ordinary life, rife with poetry and humor. In July, audiences can view rehearsals in-person at the space as the artists block the scripts. In August, staged readings will be presented at the space throughout the month. Rehearsals and performances will be on Fridays for MUD, on Saturdays for IRONBOUND, and on Sundays for THE PAVILION. Full schedule is listed at www.theartistichome.org.
