An American Tree
by Di Shawn J. Gandy
WHERE: Hamilton Stage, 360 Hamilton Street in Rahway, NJ
American Theater Group (ATG), Central NJ’s professional theater company, will launch a series of Monday night play readings, beginning with An American Tree by Di Shawn J. Gandy.
American Tree delves into deep emotions and hidden secrets, where choices
can save or shatter. As tension mounts, the heart-wrenching decision between
preserving the fragile family and embracing the untold story unfolds, where
past and present collide.
The reading will be directed by Diane L. Parker. The cast includes: Carmen Balentine, Andrea LaTrell, Michael Maurice, Sandra Ward, Felicia Russell, Derek Simmons and Peter Reimann. A Q&A discussion with the playwright and the cast will follow the reading.
“ATG’s mission it to present new works and undeservedly neglected ones,” said Jim Vagias, ATG’s Producing Artistic Director, “and we are always pleased for the opportunity to expose our audiences to provocative new works and playwrights.”
Stage is independently operated
under the governance of Union County Performing Arts Center. www.ucpac.org.
