SCORES OF MAINE'S BEST PERFORMING ARTISTS HELP MAD HORSE THEATRE COMPANY CELEBRATE PLAYWRIGHT ARTHUR MILLER
SOUTH PORTLAND — Mad Horse Theatre Company will pay tribute to one of America’s greatest playwrights while recognizing many of Maine’s premier performing artists with "A Six Pack of Miller" running April 2-14 at Mad Horse Theater at The Hutchins Schoolhouse, 24 Mosher Street.
Six of Arthur Miller’s best-loved works will be performed as staged readings for two nights each, over a course of two weeks. Over 60 artists, ranging in age from 13 to 75 years old, will bring the powerful language of these plays to life.
“We are excited to be working with so many talented people who represent the breadth and depth of the Maine theater scene,” said Christine Louise Marshall, artistic director of Mad Horse Theatre Company. “With the sheer volume of productions these people are regularly committed to, it is often hard to arrange schedules to enable us to work with them on fully staged productions, which can involve a commitment of six to 10 weeks. With these readings, we can work around schedule conflicts, while getting the opportunity to hear Miller’s language spoken by some of the best talent Maine has to offer.”
Audience talkbacks will be part of the productions which will allow audiences to weigh in on their favorite plays, and share their thoughts on hearing some of the playwright’s lesser-known works alongside the classics.
Tickets are $10 per performance. A Miller Pass for all six readings is available for $30.
