Aspie Works returns to the MuCCC on Saturday, May 16 at 2:00pm with the staged reading premiere of label founder Justin Rielly’s latest play, Practicing Godot.
The play follows the activities of two character actors who are waiting for the arrival of the director helming a new all-female production of Samuel Beckett’s landmark existential work Waiting for Godot. Yet the actors’ different attitudes towards theater may cause a rift between them; they also deal with a stage manager who would rather be anywhere else, and an experienced actor who gets called in when things threaten to get out of control…
Rielly will direct the staged reading, featuring an all-female ensemble including Lauren Leone Baker, Danielle Erway, Shana Krisiloff and Sandra Lowe-Dusel, with Jacqueline Moe on stage narration.
Miss Baker and Miss Moe recently starred in Aspie Works’ staging of The Rape of Lucrece, with Miss Erway appearing last June in Rielly’s dramedy A Different Normal. This is Miss Krisiloff and Ms. Lowe-Dusel’s first show for the label.
The show will be performed at the MuCCC, 142 Atlantic Avenue, Rochester, as a “pay-what-you-will” presentation.
