Voices From the Fringe

Two Programs of Staged Readings

The STS Playhouse and Woodstock Fringe present two programs of staged readings of new short plays written by members of the Woodstock Fringe Playwrights Unit. Each of two programs of short plays will be presented twice. Program 1 will be presented on Sat Aug 16 at 8pm and Sun Aug 17 at 2pm. Program 2 will be presented Sat Aug 23 at 8pm and Sun Aug 24 at 2pm.

The Woodstock Fringe Playwrights Unit is a playwriting workshop and laboratory, now in its ninth year. The core belief of the Playwrights unit is: The act of creation is an act of courage. A group of playwrights, composers, lyricists, book writers and actors assemble every other week to share and develop new work. The culture of the Playwrights Unit is one of community, nourishment, honor, mutual respect, and professionalism.

Eleven Playwrights Unit playwrights will be represented in the two Programs of new short plays. A splendid company of actors, most local to the Hudson Valley, have come together to read this eclectic and exciting collection of new plays. The play are funny, sad, outrageous, moving, witty and literate.
