Celebrating new plays and new connections, UW Drama, in partnership with Seattle Repertory Theatre presents a new play reading series featuring current graduate student actors and professional actors from the Seattle community. Working with local and national playwrights in rehearsal, professional directors, and experienced actors, UW graduate students will deeply benefit from this incredible opportunity. Audiences will be treated to a first look at brand new, freshly unveiled play.
Lidless by Frances Ya-Chu Cowhig. In this play, a former Guantanamo Bay interrogator has done her best to move on from the brutal relationships she had with detainees at the prison. But when one man shows up in her Minneapolis flower shop, she realizes she can’t escape her past. A haunting psychological drama, the play has already earned Cowhig the 2009 David C. Horn Prize in the Yale Drama Series competition for emerging playwrights.
LidLess is showing tonight at 7:30pm at the Jones Playhouse Theater. For tickets and information, visit the UW Drama Website!
