I just found out that my old mentor and NLU Graduate Writing Program Director, Dr. Joanne Koch, has her latest plays featured at the Chicago Writer’s Bloc Festival of Plays in Evanston on the evening of April 29 (7:30pm).
The Fest, at the Next Theatre Company, 927 Noyes St., begins with a gala benefit performance of this original musical that launches the Festival at 7 p.m. with free food and drinks, a silent auction, and a raffle. Tickets for the gala are $20. All other shows are $10 and begin at 8 p.m. A Festival Pass good for all performances, many featuring Equity actors, is available for $25. Tickets may be purchased from Brown Paper Tickets, at 800-838-3006, online at www.brownpapertickets.com, or by paying at the door.
The festival if a great way to meet artists of the written word, playwrights, and actors–as well as all-around fascinating Chicago people.
Be there or be square!
