What a lovely gift the theatre world is going me for my birthday — A production of a new ten-minute play and a reading of a new full-length play. If you live in Massachusetts and would like to attend either event, here is the relevant information. Maybe we’ll see you there?
King Arthur in Contemporary Connecticut
a full-length play by James C Ferguson
Thursday, March 14, 7:00 PM
Trident Booksellers & Cafe 338 Newbury Street Boston, MA
Please join the Vagabond Theatre Group for a reading of local playwright James C Ferguson’s KING ARTHUR IN CONTEMPORARY CONNECTICUT!
In the middle of a battle with the evil Mordrid, King Arthur is suddenly and magically transported to the twentieth century, where he’s faced with continuing his quest for the Holy Grail. In this comedy/satire inspired by Mark Twain’s famous work A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court, the Has-been King Arthur meets up with the wizard Merlin (who of course–being a wizard–is immortal ) and the ghosts of friends long past to settle scores and forge a new future.
As with all TWBW readings, admission is FREE, though we do suggest a donation of $2 to help us continue to hold events like this and bring fresh, new voices to Boston audiences.
So, arrive early, grab a drink and a bite to eat in Trident’s cafe, and support small theatre!
RSVP on Facebook and invite your friends!
“News”, a ten-minute play by James C. Ferguson, will be part of Theatre One‘s Slice of Life Festival of New Ten Minute Plays March 22, 23 and 24 at The Alley Theatre 133 Center St Middleboro, MA.
