    Staged Reading, Brendan Wattenberg '06

    Floyd, a writer committed to a mental institution, invites his parents, ex-girlfriend, and therapist to play themselves in a public reading of his new screenplay. As the play-within-the-play spins into a strangely familiar autobiography, interruptions outside the manuscript make for an absurd and troubling session of meta-theatrical psychoanalysis.

    Staged Reading is the final project for Directing II: Advanced Workshop, taught by Allen Kuharski, and is directed by Brendan Wattenberg, Haverford College, '06. With Caitlin Duffy BMC '07, Alison King HC '09, Matt Klinman HC '08, Matt Lowe HC '06, and Jesse Paulsen HC '09. Lighting design by Kim Comer SC '09 and costume design by Katie Baratz HC '07.

    Staged Reading is presented at Haverford and Swarthmore by the E. Clyde Lutton '66 Prize for the Performing Arts and is produced by special arrangement with Spark Productions, New York, producer, Eric Falkenstein.
