Ghent Playhouse Presents Last Train to Nibroc

The Ghent Playhouse presents, ‘Last Train to Nibroc’, running weekends from May 20 through June 5, 2022.

In the winter of 1940, two young people are forced to sit next to one another on a crowded train headed east, only to discover a mutual attraction that will change their lives forever.  A poignant and captivating gem of a play, reminiscent of Thornton Wilder.

Staged Reading ‘For the People’ at The Theater Barn in New Lebanon, May 7

HRC Showcase Theatre is presenting a Staged Reading of ‘For The People’ by Carol Mullen, at The Theater Barn, in New Lebanon, on Saturday, May 7th.

For The People is the fictional story of Pittsburgh city councilwoman Meg Cabot, the first openly lesbian elected official in Pennsylvania who, after a vicious hate crime, is suddenly thrust onto the national political stage. With her hard-charging chief of staff steering her towards a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, Meg must decide how far she will go to advance her career and what she is (and isn’t) willing to sacrifice to be both a successful politician and a good person.

Pittsburgh playwright Carol Mullen has had works produced by theaters and festivals including the Kick It! Festival (NYC); Los Angeles Women’s Theatre Project; NativeAliens Theater Collective (NYC); Outvisible Theatre (Detroit); OutWorks Festival (Louisiana State University); the Pittsburgh New Works Festival; Shelterbelt Theater (Omaha); Stage Q (Madison); WingSpace Theater (Ithaca); The Women’s Theatre Project (Ft. Lauderdale); 10 x 10 in the Triangle (Carrboro); and, Off-Off Broadway at Emerging Artists Theater and Blue Pearl Theatrics. She has an MFA in Writing for the Screen and Stage from Point Park University’s Conservatory of Performing Arts and is a member of the Dramatists Guild. In 2021 For The People was selected as a Finalist by the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center, a singular honor.

Artistic Director Barbara Waldinger will direct the cast which includes Raya Malcolm, KD McTeigue, Molly Parker Myers, Shannon Rafferty and Leigh Strimbeck. After the reading there will be a talkback featuring the playwright, director, and cast members.
