      The Monday Night Reading Series presents:

      "The Actor's Gift" by William Underwood

      Directed by Drew Martin

      Featuring Dana Black and Stephen Spencer*

      A staged reading of a new play by William Underwood followed by a talkback with the playwright.

      Synopsis
      Although family is the most important thing to Liz, her alcoholism has driven most of them away. In desperation she turns to her father, Charlie, a self-centered actor whose career is on the wane, and the one family member she wants nothing to do with. The Actor’s Gift is about their struggle for redemption if not reconciliation.

      Poking the Canon 

      Instructor: Emilio Williams

      How can we adapt and subvert traditional plots and story-telling conventions to refresh the classics in a way that makes them relevant to our present day? In this generative workshop, award-winning playwright Emilio Williams will share best practices on ways to honor and question well-known stories and forms. From a content perspective, we will look at how other dramatists have probed the traditional narratives from a class, race and gender perspective. We will also look at classic story-telling structures and how we can play with them to generate alternative and unexpected theatrical experiences. The class will also review the mechanisms of comedy, drama and tragedy. We will conclude the workshop with a dramatized public reading of short pieces or fragments written by the students.

      Emilio Williams is an award-winning writer and educator. His critically-acclaimed plays have been produced in Argentina, Estonia, France, Mexico, Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States, including New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Washington DC.

      Steal Like a Playwright 

      Instructor: Mickle Maher 

      This workshop will explore the underlying mechanics that have made plays tick for the last 2,500 odd years, from Euripides to Shakespeare to Büchner to Caryl Churchill, Susan Lori-Parks, and Annie Baker, etc. Students will be asked to shamelessly steal those playwrights' tricks and techniques (if they're found useful), and employ them in the creation of their own piece. Designed for playwrights at any level (beginning or advanced), the workshop's primary goals will be to develop a personal sense of what "works" on stage within the context of what's worked in the past, and to generate a short one act play, start to finish.

      Called "One of the most original voices in American theater today" by The Houston Chronicle, Mickle Maher is a cofounder of Chicago’s Theater Oobleck, and teaches playwriting and related subjects at the University of Chicago. Plays include There is a Happiness That Morning Is; Song About Himself; An Apology for the Course and Outcome of Certain Events Delivered by Doctor John Faustus on This His Final Evening; The Cabinet; The Hunchback Variations; The Strangerer; Spirits to Enforce; Lady Madeline; The Pine; and An Actor Prepares (an adaptation of Stanislavsky's seminal book commissioned by the University of Chicago.) Recent works include the book and lyrics for the musical Small Ball, commissioned by the Catastrophic Theatre of Houston and Daryl Morey, the General Manager of the NBA’s Houston Rockets, and It Is Magic, a sequel to Macbeth, produced by Theater Oobleck in Chicago.

      Acting for Writers 2

      Instructor: John S. Green

      Having explored the basics of acting in part I, part II will ask students to become the "writer in the room” and create scenes to be acted by their fellow students. It is invaluable to understand how to speak to the director and actors using the basic language of acting they understand.

      1. Create dramatic scenes for specific actors.
      2. Communicate effectively with actors and directors in terms they understand.
      3. Explore what does and doesn’t work once a scene is on its feet.
      4. Live inside of a character from the page to the stage.
