Talkback with Indie Playwrights Saviana Stanescu & Jack Hanley

No. 11 Productions continues its series of free staged readings of plays from the Plays and Playwrights anthology series with a double-bill of short pieces from the 2006 edition. The two plays are Aurolac Blues by Saviana Stanescu and Self at Hand by Jack Hanley. The event takes place on Monday, January 5 at 7:30pm at Manhattan Repertory Theatre.

Following the performance, yours truly will moderate a talkback featuring both of these remarkable playwrights. I am excited to chat with them--they truly represent the cutting-edge of American drama, and I know they will have a lot of valuable insights to share with the audience.

This free event offers theatre enthusiasts several great benefits. First, it's a chance to check out a lovely intimate space that you may not have ever been to before (Manhattan Rep, right in the heart of Times Square, is still one of NYC theatre's best kept secrets!). Second, it's a chance to see an ambitious and talented young company essay a couple of unusual plays. And third, it's a chance to meet Saviana and Jack and engage with them about their work. Saviana's most recent play, Aliens with Extraordinary Skills, opened the current season at Women's Project. Jack's next play will be at Dixon Place in a few months.
