DWPC member Katherine (Kim) Millett’s play, Famous Last Words, has been chosen for the Athena Project’s “Plays in Progress” series. The Project has hired a director, dramaturge, stage manager, and actors to present the play with minimal staging.
There will be two performances at DU’s Newman Center, Byron Theater: April 1 at 4 pm and April 2 at 7 pm. Tickets are $12.
“It’s a dream come true for a new playwright,” said Millett. “I have already begun to work with the dramaturge on envisioning how to make the play work on stage. We’ll have 25 hours of rehearsal time before the two performances, and I can hardly wait. It will be exciting, and no doubt humbling, to put the play to the test, find out how actors react to their lines and how the director solves problems of space, time, and illusion.”
Angela Astle launched the Athena Project in 2012 to bring new work by women writers to the stage. She was the featured speaker for our February dinner meeting on Feb. 13, 2017. Learn more.
