THE PLAY’S THE THING: New Play Reading at Heartland
A new play reading of a full-length play in development, “NO SUCH THING,” using Heartland actors playing the roles, simply staged on stools on Heartland’s stage.
A middle-aged married woman takes an anonymous lover and begins an affair that
blends sex and storytelling. Fact and fiction collide. No Such Thing examines the
question of what makes a story . . . and the possible consequences of finding one’s bliss.
Invited credentialed responders help the audience understand play process and structure. Featuring John Bowen, John Fischer, Devon Lovell, Jacqueline Schwartzentraub and Melissa Shrader. Directed by Rhys Lovell.
Meet this season’s featured playwright, Lisa Dillman.
Two performances: Febraury 25 and 26, 2022. $5 Donation at the door.

“I’ll have grounds
More relative than this —
the play’s the thing
Wherein I’ll catch the
