Plays in Progress and Hudson Hall present Taking a Stand, an afternoon of staged readings of short pieces written and produced by the playwrights, actors, and directors of Plays in Progress.
Plays in Progress (PIP) was launched in 2009 by a small group of professional actors, writers, and directors. For the past eight years, PIP has met monthly at the historic Hudson Opera House to read and discuss each writer’s current works-in-progress. Every year, PIP produces a Gala to benefit Hudson Hall, consisting of original short plays developed during the monthly meetings.
Taking a Stand, written by Ellen Clarkson, Mel Cobb Jr., Christopher Conant, Lucile Lichtblau, Byron Nilsson, Marcia Slatkin, and Jesse Waldinger, features never-before performed plays about different forms of love; fear of commitment; William Shakespeare’s improbable gentlemanly aspirations; the turning point of the Dreyfus Affair; a contest between hummus-makers, and more. Proceeds from Taking a Stand will benefit Hudson Hall.
