Does the truth always set us free? When a mother and daughter attempt to deal with the accidental death of their son/brother, the truth may indeed stand in the way of their healing. Those are the questions raised when the Tennessee Stage Company presents its 20th Annual New Play Festival and World Premiere Production of Marilynn Barner Anselmi’s play, Found Objects.
Marilynn Barner Anselmi says she is an accidental southerner and playwright. Born in Holt, Michigan, after close to three decades in North Carolina, she has almost attained the status of southerner. She has full length and a handful of short scripts which have been presented in fourteen states across the country. Performances include MT Works, Pride Films and Plays, Detroit Repertory Theatre, Kennedy’s Theatre, The Studio Theatre, Atta Girl Productions, Script2Stage2Screen, National Black Theatre Conference, and Tennessee Stage Company, among others.
Performances are February 3-12, 2017, at 8 p.m. at the Historic Southern Railway Station. There will be matinee performances Sunday afternoons at 3:00 pm.
Tickets are on sale now. Call (865) 546-4280 for tickets and reservations.
General Admission is $15.00
The New Play Festival is made possible in part by the support of the Tennessee Arts Commission and the Arts and Culture Alliance and is a proud participant in the Penny For The Arts Program.
