The Newtowne Players to Fête Cast and Crew of woman: revised

To celebrate The Newtowne Players’ participation in the Eastern States Theatre Association Regional Festival this April, the theater is hosting a send-off for the cast and crew of woman: revised, winner of the 2011 Maryland Community Theatre Festival!

The Newtowne Players will perform woman: revised, an original one-act play by local author Trish Cole, on Thursday, April 14 at 7 p.m. The performance will be held at Three Notch Theatre on 21744 South Coral Drive in Lexington Park, followed by a wine and cheese reception. Woman: revised puts a comedic face on the mundane act of revising the dictionary definition of the word “woman.” Over the course of the play, the woman discovers she is no longer the classic feminine sweetheart she once was and learns to accept that her 21st century definition is more inclusive than she wanted.

Donations will be accepted at the door, and all funds will be used to help underwrite the expenses involved in taking the performance to the Eastern States Theatre Association Regional Festival, which will be held April 15-17 in Pottstown, Pennsylvania, where The Newtowne Players will represent the state of Maryland.

Cole also wrote Butterfly, which represented The Newtowne Players at the 2010 Maryland Community Theatre Festival.
