ALAP Member Premiere Production: Paul Elliott's play, TBD wins AACT 2017 PlayFest by Paul Elliott

From: 5/26/2017

To: 7/26/2017


Paul Elliott's comedy/drama  TBD(To Be Determined) just won one of the six coveted slots over 250 other submitted plays to have its world Premiere produced by the historic Lincoln Theatre company in Lincoln Nebraska.  The play which deals with two senior women isolated on their rural farm, who take in a battered young woman who turns out to be a trangendered male will also be published by Dramatic Publishing.  Though the play has won competitions all over the country including Best Gay Play of 2014 at the Chicago Pride Festival, this will be its first full production.   This is Paul's second win with AACT (The American Association of Community Theatres).  His first winning play, Exit Laughing, had its world premiere at the historic Landers Theatre, in Springfield, MO where it broke all house records for a non-musical playing to full houses (480 seats) for its entire run.  Exit Laughing is published by Dramatic Publishing Service and has had over 90 national and international  theatre companies producing the play since its win.  It has since been translated into Polish and Russian.   TBD hopefully will follow that same trajectory.

ALAP Member Production: Charlie Moose Makes His Move by Jessica Jill Turner

From: 6/11/2017

To: 6/24/2017


Charlie Moose Makes His Move

 Charlie Moose Makes His Move is a dark comedy about an unlikely friendship between a socially inept young boy and a morbidly obese novelist. They both seek refuge from a dismal reality in the worlds of their respective imaginations. Eventually, their fabled worlds come crashing down, leaving each more alone than ever.

It is a play about imagination and memory, and the dangers of living solely in the space where they converge.

Charlie Moose Makes His Move received the Holland New Voice Award at the Great Plains Theatre Conference as judged by Constance Congdon, Theresa Rebeck and Mac Wellman. It was also chosen for Rogue Machine Theatre’s staged reading series in Los Angeles and for Sanguine Theatre Company's reading series in NYC.
