13 Aug OOB Day 4 Results
The best way to sum up day four — so little time, so many wonderful plays!
For last night’s first session we saw Keith Burton’s The Journey, Jonathan Josephson Grandpa and The Gay Rabbi, Sunita Deshpande’s A Sari for Pallavi, and Seamus Sullivan’s Valkyrie in the Roller Disco. After a quick break we then Lindsey Kraft’s and Andrew Leed’s Wedding Bash, Carey Crim’s Room 313, Mustafa Kaymak’s Green Card, and Angela Stern’s Mama’s Eggnog.
Also, we were introduced to last night’s three judges: Samuel French playwright Crystal Skillman, City Theatre’s Literary Director Susan Westfall, and American Theatre‘s editor-in-chief Rob Weinert-Kendt. The work to choose from was so strong that our judges chose four to advance, and they are:
Grandpa and The Gay Rabbi by Jonathan Josephson
A Sari for Pallavi by Sunita Deshpande
Valkyrie in the Roller Disco by Seamus Sulllivan
Wedding Bash by Lindsey Kraft and Andrew Leeds
