Co-produced with AboutFACE Ireland, the Tangent Theater Company presents a festival featuring rehearsed readings of new plays by promising playwrights in the intimate 50-seat Carpenter Theatre in Tivoli. Over 300 submissions of plays came from as close as the Hudson Valley to as far as Ireland. Six plays were chosen by members of Tangent for the weekend event, to be held from November 8 to 11. Family has emerged, unprovoked, as the central theme of the six finalists. “Love/Sick” is a series of love stories that explore romance in the suburban jungle by John Cariani, a Tony-nominated actor and playwright best known for his role as Julian Beck in “Law & Order” and for his play “Almost, Maine”; “The Prediction” by Michael DeVito follows a family of German Jews who escape the Nazis aboard a freighter bound for Cuba; “Comes a Faery” by James McLindon tells of a parentless eight-year-old girl who is visited by an Irish storybook fairy. Five of the playwrights will attend the festival and take part in audience Q&As after the performances.
