Member Michael Gnat on our Script Development Process and “The Demi-Orphans”

WorkShop Theater Company is known for its script development process, which takes member playwrights’ works-in-progress from Sundays@Six readings, to 3-Days, and a potential Jewel Box or Main Stage production. An essential part of that is audience feedback at public readings. The discussion after each Sunday@Six is ably moderated by one of our Literary Associates, who elicits both praise and constructive criticism for the playwright.

“Some non-WorkShop writers have expressed a keen desire to get in on our wonderful process!  This Sunday, December 21 at 6 PM, one of them is getting his wish. Playwright Jay Strong will have his play The Demi-Orphans read in the Jewel Box, and he looks forward to having friends, company members, and friends of the WorkShop there!

“We are fortunate enough to have Leslie Kincaid Burby, winner of a New York Innovative Theater ‘Best Director’ award, directing. Her work with the WorkShop includes both the Drama Desk-nominated The Navigator and the IT-nominated The Chekhov Dreams.

“The cast includes Lucy McMichael and Michael Gnat, who have worked together both onstage and in film. Alyssa Simon, known in part for her work at The Brick Theater, is an Indie Theater Hall of Famer. C.K. Allen, who played a civil rights campaigner in last week’s Sunday reading, returns this week to play a road comic. Rounding out the cast are Ethan Cadoff, known to WorkShop audiences for The Winter’s Tale and Sterling Time, and Joe Burby, star of Delphi Theatre’s Macbeth.”
