24/7 2015 Directors

Posted in 24-7 on January 7th, 2015 by wholetheatre

This town has the great directors all over it.  But sometimes they’re busy, or hidden, or in high demand.  It’s like a scavenger hunt to find them and lock them in while they still have availability.

We are pack rats.  Or squirrels.  Or hunter-gatherer-types-of-gun-free-amerian-artists.  Anyway, look what we found.  Charlottesville’s hottest director list.  Each and everyone has (voluntarily) signed on for 24/7 2015 at Live Arts.

24/7 2015 Directors (alphabetically by first name):

  • 24-7-2015-directorsBryan Garey
  • Edward Warwick-White
  • Erica Arvold
  • Jasmine Witmer
  • Kate Bennis
  • Marty Moore
  • Mary Burruss

5 women, 2 men.  That’s right.  The secret is out.

The Sugar at Live Arts

Posted in 24-7, Dirty Barbie on September 20th, 2014 by wholetheatre

BIRCH presents:

sugar-jar-at-live-artsTHE SUGAR at Live Arts (go now)

by Denise Stewart; directed by Ray Nedzel

Denise is a three time 24/7 playwright; and the writer and performer of Dirty Barbie and other girlhood tales.

Synopsis of THE SUGAR:  Sally Dawson is on a sugar fast.  She picked the wrong month to give up a vice as her freeloading younger brother re-appears on her doorstep wanting to challenge her work as a Wellness Coach and mocking her newly acquired podcast.  As a national headline-making trial unfolds in the town around her, Sally focuses on herself and her clients.  Written by one of our favorite local playwrights, The Sugar is sure to leave you with a high from which you won’t want to come down.
