Workshop production of a new play produced in cooperation with Primary Stages
February 17-20, 2011
Little Monsters is made possible through generous support from the Harold and Mimi Steinberg Charitable Trust, the Brandeis Arts Council, and the Laurie Foundation.
In this workshop-style production on the heels of last season’s successful ‘Cocktail Time in Cuba’ is a new play from Maria Alexandria Beech. Possibly gifted poet Sara and her hypochondriac mother live a squalid, small existence but that does not keep Sara from seeking a relationship and a way up and out of her New York studio apartment. In her pursuit of the ‘perfect’ mate through internet dating she learns is she really looking for herself, her history, her story? Maria Alexandria Beech is the winner of the Aspen Theatre Masters Visionary Award and member of the Dorothy Strelsin Writer’s Group at Primary Stages in New York. Be part of the creation of a new play by participating in one of the post-show discussions with the playwright and other members of the creative team.
Featuring Stephanie Clayman, Jesse Hinson, Rob McFadyen, Johnnie McQuarley, Samantha Richert, Levi Rion
