The mission of Playwrights Local is to expose new scripts by local writers, ranging from first readings to full productions.
It starts the year with a staged reading of P.H.I.L. by Phil Manos, featuring Dionne Atchison and Sean Manos. It’s described as taking to an extreme the idea of corporate America giving people what they want for constantly higher fees.
This is how they summarize the plot: “Rob and Sadie are a couple whose marriage is on the rocks until Rob, when drunk, orders a replica of himself as a gift. ‘P.H.I.L. (Partnering Helpmate In Life)’ quickly becomes as indispensable as a cell phone, but not necessarily as controllable.”
It’s part of Playwright Local’s Roundtable Series, which presents works in development, where the playwright (and the audience) can see the work on stage and see what works and what doesn’t. It takes place in the Creative Space at Waterloo Arts. It’s free and open to the public.
