Our very own writer extraordinaire Laura Rohrman has been busy at work on two short plays that will be shown in “A DELIGHTFUL NIGHT OF SOCIAL ROMANCE” an evening of short plays presented as staged readings with some songs written by its members. The theme is celebrating the holidays with a twist. The free event is on Wednesday, November 10th from 8 to 10 PM. Manhattan Theatre Source suggests a donation of $10.00. For reservations please call 866-811-4111. The MANHATTAN THEATRE SOURCE is located at 177 MacDougal Street(cross is 8th Street).
“A DELIGHTFUL NIGHT OF SOCIAL ROMANCE” includes staged readings of two new one-act comedies by Laura Rohrman and one new one-act play written by Aurin Squire. Two new songs will also be presented, including “The Face Book” song written and performed by SARA ADLER.
In LAURA ROHRMAN’S “GEISHA SCHOOL” directed by LI MURILLO, girls go wild online and off when studying to be Geishas in New York City. “CYBERIA” by AURIN SQUIRE, directed by BRIAN HANSCOM goes into the deep blue mist of e-love, e-trade, and e-scape.
