DON'T CALL ME SHIRLEY: THE LEGEND OF SHOSHANA FEINBERG
by Paul Moulton
Moderated by Derrell Capes
Readers required: 5 men, 2 women

It’s 1952. The star and head writer of radio’s “That Dizzy Broad” is threatened with blacklisting if she doesn’t write an FBI-approved script.


The First Draft Series is a series of weekly play readings in the style of a playwrights’ salon, where playwrights themselves read aloud and discuss each others’ work in a relaxed, supportive setting. Each reading is performed by the Network playwrights in attendance and is followed by a discussion moderated by a Resident playwright.

All Network playwrights are welcome, free of charge, and are encouraged to attend frequently. Resident playwrights also are welcome, as are one or two invited guests of the playwright whose play is being read.
