Play Review Society

The Play Review Society is a program offered by The Theatre Guild that opens a new way to appreciate Theatre as well as a different vehicle for the Arts.  It also works as a great small step for someone who may be interested in getting started on stage but may be a little shy to start. This program sees The Theatre Guild “auditioning” new stage shows and scripts for future seasons. Through this program, we have access to current shows on Broadway or touring that could be selections in our future seasons. Every few scenes, those attending will switch parts offering a different version of the characters. At the end of the show, everyone will have a chance to give their thoughts on the script, performances, and if they would like to see this show as a possibility for future show selection. Who knows? You may also see a famous film script offered one month like Tombstone, Breakfast Club, or even Pulp Fiction. You never know what The MTG Play Review Society will bring up next. Come out and enjoy the fun!

The Theatre Guild’s Play Review Society will meet on Wednesday November 28 at 6:00 PM in the Community Room of the Morristown Public Library.

Our reading selection for November is another comedy – God Of Carnage written by Christopher Hampton and based on the play by Yasmina Reza.

Synopsis – Winner of the 2009 Tony Award for Best Play, God of Carnage relates an evening in the lives of two couples, residents of a Brooklyn neighborhood, who meet to discuss a playground incident. Alan and Annette’s son hit Michael and Veronica’s son in the face with a stick, resulting in two broken teeth. The four of them agree to discuss the incident civilly, but, as the night wears on and drinks are imbibed, the polite veneer breaks down.

 

The Play Review Society meets on the last Thursday of every month and is offered FREE OF CHARGE to the community. If it must be rescheduled,  we will schedule to the closest available day and let the community know. For more info, contact us at tgmedia1934@gmail.com.
