REACT THEATRE presents MRS. PACKARD
Start: Sun, 03/28/2010 – 2:00pm
Co-presented with support from REACT THEATRE and ABRAMS ARTISTS AGENCY. Elliott Bay’s Eleventh Annual Staged Play Reading Series continues with a second reading this month as we bid a fond farewell to our venue for over a decade. Today’s featured play will be the exciting new drama set in Illinois in 1861, Mrs. Packard by Emily Mann. Without proof of insanity, Elizabeth Packard is committed by her husband to an asylum. Based on historical events, Mann’s play tells of one woman’s courageous struggle to right a system gone wrong in this winner of the Kennedy Center Fund for New American Plays Award. You won’t want to miss this engaging, significant and passionate play. Please join us for this unique blend of theatrical staging and the spoken word. Free Admission, ($5 suggested donation at the door.) Reservations encouraged. For additional information visit www.reacttheatre.org.
