John Wooten - Playwright, Theatre Producer/Director
 
Join us for coffee and conversation with John Wooten who will discuss "A Play from the Page to the Stage: The Dramatic Evolution of a Central Idea - Retooling, Re-Inventing and Rewriting Your Script into a Producible Form."
 
Mr. Wooten has rewritten "Purple" four times. First it was a screenplay with a large cast and numerous locations from Boston to South Carolina. After hearing it read by professional actors as part of our Playreading series hosted by Arlene Dahl, he decided to turn it into a play with a slightly smaller but still quite large cast and several sets, visuals and rear projections. After hearing version two read as part of our series, he decided to turn it into a four-character, one-set play -- using the two main couples as the cast -- although their motives and characteristics changed of their own volition along the way, and "Purple" became "The Sticks." Professional actors will read version four, still titled "The Sticks" on Monday August 9th. The same two couples make up the cast but different actors will be needed because almost everything else has again changed. For August 9th Playreading reservations, please call 212-459-3630 ext. 204.

RESERVATIONS REQUIRED DUE TO BUILDING SECURITY. ALL NAMES MUST BE ON GUEST LIST.
