Summer on the Patio – Staged Readings
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 August, staged readings will be presented at the company’s new space at 3054 N. Milwaukee Avenue in the Avondale/Logan neighborhood. 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.
