Two one-act plays, The 27 Club by Rita Anderson and The Catfish Prince by Monica Michell, were enthusiastically received by a large Saturday afternoon audience at the Wimberley Playhouse on May 5. Newcomers and longtime patrons also asked questions of the playwrights and made suggestions in the talkback that followed each reading.

 Actors in the roles of Amy Winehouse, Sylvia Plath and Anne Sexton donned costumes of the period for their reading of The 27 Club,.

Asked if the one-acts would become full-length plays later, Anderson explained that The 27 Club, which takes 37 minutes to perform, is one of a dozen short one-acts she has written. “Rather than expanding it, I would add a couple of others one-acts to make a full length show,” she said.

Michell said she was inspired by audience suggestions  to consider lengthening The Catfish Prince, already slightly more than one hour long. Developing the secondary characters with complex relationships would be a logical extension, she said.

Wimberley Players President David thanked patrons for coming out to experience something new. “Reaching out to new audiences with plays like these gives us an opportunity to feature newer work. We are also pleased to recognize the accomplishments of two award-winning female authors who live here in Central Texas,” he said.
