a new play by Shualee Cook
directed by Kate McAllister
Tesseract Playwright-in-Residence Shualee Cook has written a new play that will have a staged reading September 11th at the .Zack before opening the inaugural Festival of New Plays in May 2019. (The remaining plays included in the Festival of New Plays will be announced during the reading of Earworm!)
Earworm tells the story of Candles Out, a decade-old punk rock break up song seeking closure with five people whose lives she’s entwined with in very different ways – Sasha and Jory, the two band members that wrote her; Trevor, the guy they wrote her about; Elise, Trevor’s sister; and Kess, Trevor’s new girlfriend … who also happens to be the song’s biggest fan. A strange trip involving music and memory and how each affects the other.
Come be part of the development process of Earworm by sharing your feedback and response to the play on September 11th at 7:30pm.
