Keeping Up With….
Miami playwright Lauren M. Feldman, whose Fill Our Mouths was mounted at New Theatre in the 2007-2008 season, continues to stay busy. Her play Grace, or the Art of Climbing, received a staged reading early last month at the Colorado New Play Summit at the Denver Center. Last week, her play, The Egg-Layers, was the inaugural production of New Plays at Barnard program. The New York City college joined forces with a downtown company New Georges to produce Feldman’s riff on the Greek myth of Leda and the swan.
