2022 NEXT! Staged Reading Series: Fall: The Tragedy of the Faerie Queen and Her Councillors
- “The faerie forest, once a serene and blissful utopia, is now in turmoil. Unknown forces have brought on it a premature autumn and plunged the realm into endless twilight. Furthermore, a mysterious spectre has used twisted sorcery to disable and paralyse the magical faerie queen, and abducted one of her trusted councillors. As the fae work to restore things to as they were before, they begin to realise that their problems, perhaps, lie inside the forest as much as they do outside.”
The NEXT! play-reading series continues its mission to celebrate and inspire Central New York playwrights, as well as to introduce their work to a larger audience. Giving playwrights the ability to collaborate with local directors and performers, this series also welcomes the valuable feedback from the public which is critical to the development of any new work. Three plays are selected each year on the basis of their literary and artistic merit, and are presented free to the public.
