WEST HARTFORD – Join Playhouse on Park in designating the Greater Hartford area as a premiere destination for the cultivation of innovative theatrical work! The Playwrights on Park Reading Series was created for this very purpose, and our next evening in this exciting series is Tuesday, April 24 at 7:30pm with Adam Bertocci’s Miranda from Stormville.
Miranda from Stormville is Shakespeare’s The Tempest loosely retold in a small town in the wilds of New Jersey. Miranda Milano is young and trapped in the middle of nowhere, caring for her protective father in his state of slow mental decline. When a violent storm brings soft-hearted Will Ferdinand to her doorstep, what they share in their few hours together will change both their lives forever.
Adam Bertocci is an award-winning writer and filmmaker. His work has been praised by Entertainment Weekly, USA Today, The New Republic, GQ, The Wall Street Journal, The Guardian, Back Stage, Broadway World, E!, Maxim, IGN, Wired, Film Threat and more. His first play was the worldwide viral sensation Two Gentlemen of Lebowski, now published by Simon & Schuster, which received acclaim from the Royal Shakespeare Company and the Folger Shakespeare Library; AOL Pop Eater hailed Bertocci as “a Shakespeare adaptation expert”. Miranda from Stormville marks his debut as a dramatic playwright and his long-awaited return to the work of the Bard.
The mission of Playwrights on Park is to produce original plays and musicals written by emerging playwrights. Each reading features a new work, where audience members participate in a talk back session with the playwright, director and cast members. Audience members are also provided with response cards at the end of each reading. Additionally, there is a talkback segment featuring the Playwright and cast after each reading.
