TOWN PLAYERS OF PITTSFIELD STAGED READING
Pittsfield, 2 p.m.
On Sunday, January 29 at 2pm, Town Players of Pittsfield presents a staged reading of "Opus to Moonlight", the first full-length play by Berkshire resident Ren Campbell.  Three women and one shattering event create a debilitating tension between art and life. "Opus to Moonlight" is a story about choices, secrets and creation. Three women, at three different stages of life, return to face the truth about the past. Time is fluid; the past interrupts the brief hour they spend together in the artist's studio where their greatest achievements and ultimate betrayals occurred. In the end each must choose the future they are willing to create. “Living is a form of not being sure, not knowing what next or how. The moment you know how you begin to die a little. The artist never entirely knows. We guess. We may be wrong, but we take leap after leap in the dark.” Agnes de Mille The following are in the cast: Samantha Blau, David Boag, Kristen Bossio, Julie Gorman, Mary Anne Nelson Grammer, Arlene Kiesler, Randy Lemire, Carla Lewis, Leah Parker and Steve Schatz. This staged reading is being co-directed by Marion Cimini and Ren Campbell at the Whitney Center for the Arts, 42 Wendell Avenue in Pittsfield. Admission is $5.
