Scenes by Historic Women Playwrights, Read by Stage Greats at Georgetown U- free

This looks like a special evening. Three Broadway actresses reading the works of some of the greatest playwrights - who also happen to be women. It starts at 7:30 but we will have to get there early to get seats. It's free. More details to come later.

History Matters/Back to the Future
Scenes by Historic Women Playwrights: Read by Luminaries of the Stage
Co-sponsored by Women and Theatre Program of the Association for Theatre in Higher Education (ATHE) and the Davis Performing Arts Center
Too many gifted women playwrights of the past are too much forgotten. Three superb, acclaimed actors bring the past alive in this concert reading: Kathleen Chalfant, Judith Ivey, and Tamara Tunie will read great scenes from plays by celebrated women writers such as Zoë Akins, Rachel Crothers, Edna Ferber, Angelina Grimke, Lillian Hellman, Fay Kanin, and Edith Wharton, directed by Joan Vail Thorne. When the past comes alive, it points the way to the future. This special event draws New York-based theater artists to the Georgetown, reminding DC audiences and artists alike of the great contributions of women to American theater history with wit, drama, and lively contemporary stakes. This free, public reading is presented in conjunction with the Women and Theatre Program's annual national conference, hosted this year in the Davis Performing Arts Center.

    Sorry, I may have to change my RSVP as I just found out I have to attend a late meeting so if there is anyone on the waiting list, please feel free to have them fill my spot.

    Yes, that's a good plan. Let's meet at the venue at around 6 pm and assess the situation. We may have to wait in line, so I'm not sure about the food situation. Here's a map of campus (though it's fairly easy to find theater or just ask someone). http://maps.georgetown.edu/davisperformingartscenter/
    Also be careful with parking - the "2 hours until 9pm" will be risky. MY number[masked]
