Our 4th and Final Reading of 2011 is . . .

We’re going international, y’all!

On December 12th at 8 PM, we’ll have our final reading of the year and this time, we’ve gone overseas to get our subject.

Martha, Marina comes to us all the way from Romania, and was written by Bucharest native, Ana-Maria Bamberger.  Before her career as a playwright, Ana-Maria was a physician, but eight years ago she put down the stethoscope and picked up a pen keyboard.

Full disclosure – Martha, Martha has had a life before our reading in Romania, and a fairly successful one at that.  And after Ana-Maria picked up that keyboard, she picked up a few awards as well, and has gone on to quite a career as a playwright.

So why did we choose it for our developmental reading?

1 – I’m a big believer in building theatrical bridges/tunnels/skywalks from NYC to the rest of the world, and

2 – I thought it would be an interesting test to see how a play that has had success in another country and in another language would translate to NYCese.

And, I happen to know that while Ana-Maria loves having her work done in European theaters . . . there’s one place she’d really like to make it . . . and it ain’t London.

Save the date!  Davenport Reading Series goes global.

Monday, December 12th at 8 PM.  Invite will be blogged a week before.
