    The Play’s the Thing

    Friends of the Fort Myers Library, in partnership with Florida Rep, present “The Play’s the Thing” on Monday, April 16 at 6:30 PM. A new play doesn’t just spring to life fully realized. It goes through many iterations on the way to the audience. The first and most important step is to have it staged. That’s also one of the most difficult for the playwright to accomplish.

    Florida Rep’s Play Lab was established to help. In this talk by Producing Artistic Director Jason Parrish, attendees will learn how Play Lab came to be, what a staged reading is and how the audience helps the playwright refine the script. Florida Rep actors will also perform a preview of the upcoming staged readings. Come learn how you can help choose a new play to be staged in the Florida Rep 2018-19 season.

    The location is the library’s meeting rooms at 1651 Lee St. Admission is free, but registration is required.
