The Plays and Playwrights:
IN A CLEARING by Karen Saari (Madison, WI) - Thursday, October 1st, 7:30pm
Set in a small town in Northern Wisconsin, In a Clearing centers around Mark, a newly recovering alcoholic embarking on a relationship with Pam, a childhood friend who has returned home in the wake of a family tragedy. As Mark copes with sobriety, he begins to suffer from flashbacks to an event that may eventually threaten his relationship and the life he is trying to rebuild.
FAITHLESS by Michael Proft (Cedarburg, WI) - Friday, October 2nd, 7:30pm
At the turn of the last century, a woman journalist conducted a series of interviews with Mary Baker Eddy, the founder of Christian Science. Faithless is a fictionalized depiction of those meetings and the events surrounding them, as well as the story of that reporter -- a woman finding her voice in a field and a time where men call all the shots.
LEARNING TO STAY by James DeVita (Spring Green, WI) - Saturday, October 3rd, 7:30pm
Adapted by playwright James DeVita from the 2013 novel by Madison-based author Erin Celello, Learning to Stay asks what you would do when the person you're married to is no longer the person you married. Attorney Elise Sabatto is thrilled when her husband returns home in one piece from his military service in Iraq. But as the after-effects of his trauma set in, Elise must find a way to help him – and save herself.
