On Saturday, Jan. 20th, there was a performance of “Exploratory Playwriting”.

The program featured scripts deemed “One Character Wonders” from classes taught by Nicholas Checker at the Thames Club in New London, in coordination with the Garde Arts Center and Flock MakerSpace.  Each script presented an emotions tour de force in which a single character, caught in a state of angst, struggled with the source of that angst, and finally resolves it, for better or worse, while speaking directly to the audience.  

Playwrights included in the presentation were: Henry Stebbines, Jr., David Hamilton, Jo Ann Gallant Brown, Ellen Dahl, Peter Yackovetsky, Thelma Marie Waterman, Pam Barber, and were self performed, or performed by actors Adriana Medina, Darla Allen, Jo Ann Galat Brown.
