Students, faculty and alumnae/i of Sarah Lawrence College will present a series of new play readings and projects in "Springboard 2002," an annual, weeklong theatre festival held in New York City. The performances will run from Monday April 15th through Sunday April 21st at Cap 21 Stage, 15 West 28th Street, 2nd Floor, Manhattan. All performances are free and open to the public.
"Springboard 2002 will give the community, students and faculty an informal look at new work, performance pieces, reconstructions and music and dance pieces in a new venue," explained Shirley Kaplan, the Director of the Sarah Lawrence College Theatre Program and Artistic Director of Springboard 2002. Works will include new plays including "One Fine Day," a black comedy by recent alumnus Peter Morris whose "The Rose and the Ring" was performed to widespread critical acclaim in London last December, and "We Need an Enemy," a play written from first-hand experiences of the conflict in the Middle East by senior student Jessamyn Fiore. The program is designed to give noted Sarah Lawrence College alumnae/i and graduate and undergraduate students opportunities for interaction, allowing theatrical work to be carried out in the spirit of collaboration, Kaplan said.
