FourPlay!

by:  Lawrence Goodman, Huntington Playwriting Fellow at 12/04/2013

Introducing: FourPlay! We all entered the Huntington Playwriting Fellows program in 2011 and now meet regularly as a writer's group. Here's a little bit about what we've all been up to:

Rosanna Yamagiwa Alfaro has been revising her play, Mammal Heat, which was part of the Huntington's Summer Workshop this past July. Two of her plays will be in the One Minute Play Festival in January, and her slightly longer "Sailing Down The Amazon" will be published soon in ESTROGENIUS 2012.

Masha Obolensky is currently working with Melia Bensussen on a multimedia piece loosely inspired by the fairytale Bluebeard. In 2013, her play Marvelous Fruit was a finalist for PlayPenn and the Source Festival DC, and a semi-finalist for the Eugene O'Neill Theatre Conference.

Miranda Craigwell's play Shelter is being developed as part of the XX PlayLab, a collaborative program between the Boston Center for the Arts and Company One Theatre designed to propel the work of female playwrights from development to production. There will be a staged reading presented during the week-long PlayLab festival, June 4 — 8 at the BCA.  

Lawrence Goodman is currently at work on a trilogy about American Jews: The Disappearance of the Jews, about the legacy of the Holocaust; The Zionist Conspiracy, about politics; and If I Forget Thee, O Jerusalem, about Israel.

We've been going on for two year now, critiquing each other's work, kibitzing about the Boston theater scene, and cheering each other up after rejections. Thanks to Charles and Lisa for realizing we would gel so well as a group!
