Haunted Play [A Tale of the Naïve and Macabre]

written and directed by Steven Dietz

JULY 23 & 24, Spark Fest

About the play: Two writers arrive at a darkened theatre to receive an undisclosed award. What they receive instead is a play “ghosted” by a host of other famous works. They encounter a steep fall – both comic and macabre – into their deepest creative fears. As Dietz (the author of over forty works for the stage) states in his foreword to the play: “I can’t make the theatre be new to me. Perhaps, though, I can make myself be new to the theatre once again.”

 

This event is a part of Spark Fest, our annual Summer celebration of groundbreaking and exciting new art.

 

This is a developmental reading, meaning you’ll watch performers act from the script. This reading is the culmination of playwright, director, and actors spending time reading and rehearsing this play, making changes, and presenting to the public for further feedback. You are part of the process!
