SOME NOTES ABOUT 3 A.M.
Jennifer Copland’s long night of the soul has been updated by the author to 2008 for the benefit of this performance and KXCI. Jennifer Copland lives in Ayr, Ayrshire, Great Britain where she writes for BBC radio and plays for the theater. 3AM was originally performed in the United States at the Geary Street Solo Fest in San Francisco, California, by Michael Fenlason, where the production won a citation of excellence. Fenlason performed the show again in 2000 in Phoenix, Arizona, with The Unlikely Theater Company for the benefit of Art Detour and Planned Parenthood.
SOME NOTES ABOUT LNT @ THE ALLEY!
Although the concept of late night theatre is not new, Beowulf Alley Theatre Company is still young and growing and this program is our newest offering. Our goal of being a community of theatre is also intended to be a bridge to what’s new in theatre, giving voice to the new and young plays and playwrights as well as more established ones. This is not an easy task or one that we take lightly. The story must always come first. Our late night theatre mission is to attract the young, inexperienced theatergoers as well as the curious, open-minded established patron. To do that, we intend to bring stories and topics that are, perhaps, written in a more contemporary style, infusing more contemporary issues and sometimes with dialogue that may seem a little distasteful to a more mature audience. Please join us if you are ready to explore new, sometimes edgy and often a little gritty, plays by some local, talented theatre artists.
