Playwrigts Foundation- Rough Reading Series: New Play by Geetha Redd

Playwrigts Foundation- Rough Reading Series: New Play by Geetha Redd

 Please join us next week as we share the latest from Geetha Reddy!

Dear Randy,

A new season is upon us and that means it’s time to kick-off the 2014/15
Rough Readings Series
with the first draft of an
as-yet-untitled play by Resident Playwright, Geetha Reddy on Mon and Tues eves, Oct 6 & 7.

The play is conceived as a wildly imaginative journey through time and space to explore the intersection between high energy physics, women in science and hindu mytholygy. Set at the CERN Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland, the play centers on unconventional choices made by physicist Dr. Alpheratz Schen PhD. Inspired both by Lawrence Krauss’s novel A Universe from Nothing and Reddy’s own life experience as an Ind
ian woman working in the patriarchal world of science and high tech, this play delves deeply into the role of gender, race, and power in science.

Co-commissioned with Crowded Fire Theater, this reading is the play’s first public foray on a year-long developmental process, culminating in a world premiere next year. We would be honored if you would join us for this first reading.

As always, our Rough Reading Series is Pay What You Can.

Email RSVP@playwrightsfoundation or call 415 626-2176 to reserve your spot now!This event is PAY WHAT YOU CAN.

Geetha Reddy, a multiple award winning playwright, is a Resident Playwright of Playwrights Foundation.
Join us Monday, October 6th, 7:30pm at Roble Hall, Stanford University and Tuesday, October 7th, at 7pm at The Tides Theatre, San Francisco.


The Deadline for new play submissions is tomorrow night (October 1st) at midnight.

George R. R. Martin Author- A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE


by George R. R. Martin

from The Quill Sisters

“We love this series of books by George R. r. Martin on two separate fronts.  The books are filled with thrilling battles and love and betrayal and huge wolves and- holy crap- dragons.  This is epic story telling in the vein of Tolkien.  Who wouldn’t be sold?  Martin constantly keeps you on your toes by killing off main characters.  Amylynn has been a fan since before the HBO show and now there is a whole new set of fans for her to gush with.  You want to know why the HBO show is so good?  It’s because, despite the necessity of editing the inches thick books, the series follow Mr. Martin’s work very closely.  The casting is superior and sets are awe inspiring.  Do yourself a favor and get the first book- you’ll want to read more.  Then tun in to the series.  start at the beginning.  Peter Dinkle is Tyrion personified and Amylynn has a real soft spot for the Hound.  We discovered that Mr. Martin lives very close to Albuquerque and now we’re looking into the restraining order laws in the state of New Mexico.    Don’t be alarmed, Mr. Martin.”
