Our 2013 Reading Series – “Feminine Mystique: 50 Years Later” – continues this month with a workshop production of Addie Walsh’s one woman show, THAT’S ALL I GOT. Addie Walsh has collaborated with Project Y in BEFORE & AFTER, where she presented a multi-media piece set on a significant birthday. We are excited to continue to support and share her voice with this next installment of her latest play. Join us on Sunday, October 20th at 7:30pm in ART/NY Bruce Mitchell room, 520 8th avenue, 3rd floor. As always, our reading is free and open to the public, and we invite you to stay afterwards for shared conversation and wine.

ABOUT THE PLAY:
In THAT’S ALL I GOT, Addie lets it all hang out as she offers up her wacky journey to be creative and start anew as a divorced baby boomer and retired soap opera writer with an empty nest, too much time on her hands and too many poodles. Still haunted by her twilighty-zoned-out dysfunctional family, Addie mixes her past, present, and future to become her own unique creation.
ABOUT THE PLAYWRIGHT:
Addie Walsh has had a successful career as a television writer, writing for a number of daytime dramas including All My Children, Days of Our Lives, One Life to Live, Guiding Light, As the World Turns, Loving, Search for Tomorrow, and Riviera, which was set in Monaco and shown across Europe. She has been awarded an Emmy and 4 Writers Guild Awards. Her plays COUNTERS and APRIL FOOLING were produced Off Broadway.

FEMININE MYSTIQUE: 50 YEARS LATER:
Our 2013 Reading Series celebrates the 50th anniversary of Betty Friedan’s groundbreaking treatise. The plays in this series consider the changing modes of contemporary women’s lives while looking back at our shared history. Some offer new visions for the future, while others point to the shifting problems women face in the new world.
NOTE ABOUT THE SHOW:
This play was developed as part of Project Y’s Self-Generated Performance Workshop. It had its first showing in July 2013 at TheaterLab. Since then, Addie has updated the script and will be presenting a new version which includes video. We can’t wait to see Addie’s latest work with you!
