The First Day

The first day of the 2010 ICWP Playwrights' Retreat in the Department of Theatre has ended; playwrights were working all day in the OSU Theatre Computer lab, or elsewhere in the Drake Performance and Event Center; in the evening, we gathered together for readings of works in progress; first, a scene from Farzana Moon's new play about Sufi prophets, set on the deck where the retreat will end with the Central Ohio Corn Roast next Saturday, and also the place for the Walhalla Deck Plays project (see for more about that), then scenes from Geralyn Horton's play about rediscovering the early 18th century English female playwright, Susanna Centlivre, which was begun last year at the retreat.  Some images from today:
