I learned today that my historical farce “Philosophus” is one of eight plays chosen for a reading by Best Medicine Repertory Theater in Gaithersburg, Maryland for their 2017-2018 season.
Best Medicine is a more recent theater group – founded in February, 2017 – which is unique not only for its focus on new work (thank you!!), but also for its sole interest in comedic theater.
As described by Artistic Director John Morogiello: “Best Medicine Rep is a professional theater company that specializes in new comedies. The name comes from an Irish proverb that says, “A good laugh and a long sleep are the best medicine for every ailment.” We promise to provide you with at least one of those two options!”
Check out this great article on the group, including an interview with Artistic Director John Morogiello.
“Philosophus” is one of eight plays chosen out of 80+ submitted to be honored in the reading series. The series itself stretches from October, 2017 though May, 2018.
