The Script in Hand Playreading Series is curated by Anne Keefe, Playhouse Associate Artist. She co-directed with Joanne Woodward the Playhouse production of David Copperfield, directed readings of And Then There Were None, Harvey, Bedroom Farce and A Song at Twilight, and appeared in A Holiday Garland and a reading of Arsenic and Old Lace. She is a former Westport Country Playhouse Artistic Director.
The conflict between the established artist and the adulatory fan who becomes a protégé, disciple, colleague and friend – and finally threatening rival – is one of those great topics. It resurfaces in Donald Margulies’ provocative play. Margulies is literate, intellectually stimulating, and able to create characters of both dramatic and human interest. A story of what happens when the student surpasses the teacher, by cannibalizing the teacher’s own life story.
From Annie Keefe
WCP Associate Artist & Script in Hand Series Curator
"I’m a huge fan of Donald Margulies work. I find these characters immensely complicated and satisfying. When I realized I could secure a couple of terrific women to fill these roles, it was a no-brainer."
