GSPW2 Thank You!

It’s hard to believe how fast time has flown by since the second Granite State Playwrights Workshop!  Bringing these two new plays to life was truly an amazing way to kick off the New Year.

As things have slowly begun to go back to “normal” after the rush of tech week and performances, I wanted to take a moment to say thank you again to all who helped to make this second workshop a success!  We are happy to say that we were able to double our audience this year -and we hope we continue to see positive growth for future workshops.

We have been blessed by all the support we have received for this project from friends, family, and the theatre community at large. In particular, we would like to thank our panel of readers: Gail Syring, Andrew Matte, and Erin Striff for dedicating their time to reading and scoring our top five scripts. Thanks to Julianna Wiele for her wonderful logo and poster design. Thank you to Wesley Foster for lending his voice talent to the intercom in Awful People Pray.

A very heartfelt thank you to Andrew Pinard, Kevin Barrett, and everyone at the Hatbox Theatre for giving us the space and support to both launch and continue this project.

Thank you to our amazing actors -Amy, Katy, Karielle, Andrew, Kenon, Evelyn, and Michelle, our directors Jonathan and Jackie, our stage manager Chrissy and assistant director Jacob, for dedicating their time to bringing these plays to life!

Thank you to Becca Beaulieu for dedicating your time and lighting expertise to the workshop. You rock!

Thank you to Jackie for being the “other half” of Working Title and for all the hours you put into the Workshop -including hours driving from Burlington, VT!

Thank you to our audiences for coming out and supporting these new plays.

Thank you to everyone who filled out a play response form and took the time to provide thoughtful feedback to our playwrights.

Thanks to everyone who supported those in the cast and crew as well as those who shared our event and helped us to spread the word!  We couldn’t have done it without you!

Last, but certainly not least, thank you to our playwrights, Leila and James, for giving us the opportunity to bring their work to life and sharing their plays with us!

It has been an absolute blast working on this project!  Stay tuned for more information about our next one!
