As part of the Theatre League’s Summer Theatre Fest, Outré and Showtime join forces to present a reading of A Gray Divide by Juan Sanchez, starring Noah Levine and Elizabeth Price!
When Jason starts a conversation with Anna Maria about the book she’s reading, the classical play Medea, there’s an immediate connection between them. One thing leads to another and they end up at her place, discovering each other in-between bouts of heavy kissing and petting. When she suddenly remembers meeting him two years earlier at a party — and the circumstances of that meeting — the romance comes to an abrupt end. With elements of the Medea myth woven into the story, the play asks if we have the right to decide who we are and want to become, or whether we are only the sum of our experiences and forever tied to them.
The reading is for one night only, June 27 at 7:00 pm. It will be held at Showtime Performing Arts, 503 Mizner Boulevard in Boca Raton. The reading will be followed by a brief talkback with the playwright and actors.
The Theatre League’s Summer Theatre Fest has become an integral part of South Florida’s cultural landscape, and in its fourth year South Florida audiences will once again have the opportunity to see theatre for free, and check out new plays in development by South Florida playwrights. The program’s continued and growing success over of past three years has indicated to the League that theatre patrons are ready and willing to try new theatrical experiences, and even cross county lines to do it.
Every Monday from June 1 to August 31, with the exception of July 4, a South Florida Theatre League member theatre will host a reading of a new play by a local playwright.
Playwrights range from established local favorites, including Carbonell Award-winners and nominees, to emerging talents, with plays vastly ranging in subject matter and style.
