The 2nd Act Players’ New Playwright Showcase is this weekend and we have 14 amazing reasons for you to buy tickets and come see it — plays from seven amazing playwrights and a cast of seven awesome actors to perform them.
I was at a rehearsals Thursday night and was blown away by how quickly our actors are picking up the characters in each play and bringing their stories to life. I’m doubting most of you have ever seen something like this — seven short plays with seven great actors all in one 90-minute performance — and all for only 10 bucks a ticket if you buy online instead of waiting until you show up at our door, which is at 2515 Central Park Ave., Evanston inside Northminster Presbyterian Church.
Here are those 14 reasons again, first our cast:
Linda Del Bosque, Shaun Evans, Emma Fondell, Mark Lazar, Liz Lauren, Nicholas Richardson and Andre Teamer.
And our plays and their playwrights:
A Little Something, Jean Weller
One Woman’s Duty, Scott Carter Cooper
Raisin Puffs, Andre Richardson Hogan II
Spark, Barbara Blumenthal-Ehrlich
The Lady in the Woods, Hyten Davidson
The Queen of Social Media, Lawrence Keller
Peter’s Ticket Booth, John N. Frank
