ATHENS PLAYWRIGHTS’ WORKSHOP
100min – Theatre
“A staged-reading of a new play by John Patrick Bray directed by Jake Hunsbusher”
AUTHOR/PLAYWRIGHT/ORIGINATOR: John Patrick Bray
PRODUCTION COMPANY: Athens Playwrights’ Workshop
FULL DESCRIPTION: In this staged reading of a new play by John Patrick Bray and directed by Jake Hunsbusher, we’ll meet a bunch of 1990s misfits hanging out by the Hudson River in upstate, New York. They’re dealing with a lot: opioids; the economic fallout of NAFTA and IBM; and AmTrain’s plan to block off their access to the river by putting a fence all along the tracks. A fairytale for grown-ups, Tracks explores the ways in which myths are created by how life’s passengers view others through the windows of a moving train.
MORE INFO: APW’s members include actors, writers, and directors from the UGA community and community at large. Bray’s works have been produced all over the country. Friendly’s Fire, which was produced at the CCFF in 2015, has since been produced at Barter Theatre (LORT), and will have a production in downtown NYC at the 14th St. Y. His play Dead Movement which was read last year at CCFF will have its world premiere production at Onion Man in Atlanta in September. Jake Hunsbusher wrote, produced, and starred in his one-act play Amulets for Garthenon at Manhattan Repertory Theatre’s Spring 2018 One-Act Festival. He directed a ten-minute play at UGA which served as the basis for Tracks. APW members have had productions in Athens and around the country. Many of the authors’ works appear in anthologies publishes by Applause Theatre and Cinema Books, and have had productions around the US (community and professional).
