The Play Reading Series: Past Artistry by J.J. Steinfeld

Watermark Theatre


Wednesday, August 15, 2018, 01:30pm

Local PEI playwrights will have their plays read at Watermark Theatre this August as part of the theatre's Play Reading Series. Upcoming plays include Past Artistry by J.J. Steinfeld and Jennifer Platts-Fanning's play Held to the Fire

Actors from the Watermark acting company, with scripts in hand, will read the plays to an audience. This allows the playwrights to further develop their work. 

J. J. Steinfeld's Past Artistry deals with the relationship between creativity, the past, family, artistic life and artistic vision. A forty-seven-year-old artist is visited by the man, now old and wanting to confess his act before he dies, who shot him thirty-two years before. The shooting, when the artist was fifteen, led him to become an artist and he does not want to know the truth about the unknown assailant who has never been caught. The entrance of the old man into his life affects the artist's relationship with his artist daughter and with his art-dealer friend.

Jennifer Platts-Fanning's ultimate goals for writing Held to the Fire are twofold. Firstly, she hopes people struggling with bipolar will feel represented, understood and heard. Secondly, she hopes those outside the disorder will have a better understanding of this life-changing illness. The main character, Phoenix, is spinning, caught in her own maelstrom. Inner demons threaten to dismantle her life. A lover, a mother, a woman saddled with a frenzied mind, she journeys from constellation mythologies to moon gardening, yurts to communing with Death. A raw and unveiled window into the dark depths of human consciousness.

All play readings take place at 1:30 pm on: August 15 with Past Artistry by J.J. Steinfeld, and August 22 with Held to the Fire by Jennifer Platts-Fanning.
