My Chelsea Rep Lab student Keith Filangieri has a play in this summer's Strawberry One-Act Festival. Some years ago I too had a one-act (Strike Two) in the Festival, in the old space, before it burned down.
Paula's Visitor came out of my Beginning Playwriting class last fall. Keith claims that in his teenage years, he "wanted to be Stephen King." There's certainly an eerie quality to the play. Two married couples are on safari in South Africa, but things do not turn out quite the way any of them had expected. The play will be performed at St. Clement's, 423 West 46th Street in Manhattan, on August 3rd at 8PM. For $22 tickets, www.therianttheatre.com. At the box office, tickets are $25.
