BASTARDS! A Message from Scott C. Sickles

“BASTARDS!”

-or-

“I hope you can come to my play about bastards this weekend.”

unnamed

Says Scott C. Sickles, former WorkShop AD, Emmy Award-winning writer (General Hospital) and Prolific Playwright:

My new play THE GREATER AND LESSER EDMUNDS OF THE WORLD: a ten-minute play about bastards and birthright goes up for three performances in Greenhouse Ensemble’s Ten-Minute Play Soiree.

It’s a fun piece about two half-brothers who have only just discovered they’ve shares a father all their lives. There’s comedy, tragedy, and a touch of Shakespeare.

Directed by Allison Plamondon, the play features Braeson Herold and Patrick Harman (whom you might remember from the production of PERFECTING THE KISS this past spring).

Rich Orloff also has a piece in the evening, so that’s twice the fun!

The “Soiree” takes place at Theatre West 97 at
214 West 97th Street. It plays Friday, October 20 at 7:00Saturday, October 21 at 7:00, and Sunday, October 23 at 2:30. (Music and mingling begins 30 minutes before curtain.)

“Award-winning wit, wag, and piquant observer of life’s mysterious ways, Tulis McCall sets her sites on the greatest mystery of all: death, and how to live with it. When she suddenly sees a woman of a certain age staring back from her mirror, she demands to know how and when that broad got in there, and if she’s leaving anytime soon.”

Remembering LB

Last Sunday our beloved friend and member, LB Williams, took a final bow in a memorial service that remembered a beautiful, gentle, talented, serene and special man.

He was always kind, always caring and always moved you, be it on stage or off.

We will miss you LB. We will honor you and remember you, always.

Many friends of LB’s from WorkShop Theater paid their respects as they stayed close and fondly recalled their friend and colleague.

REST IN PEACE NOW, FRIEND.
