June 7, 2013

New Orleans--Southern Rep continues its "New Plays New Orleans" mission with PINTS & PLAYS, a reading series presented monthly at the Rusty Nail that features selected works read by local actors.  This month's reading is THE JERICHO TREE by Michael Aaron Santos, directed by Phil Karnell, featuring: John Neisler, Wendy Neisler, and Mike Harkins. PINTS & PLAYS takes place this month on June 24, at 7:30pm. Our partner on this project is The Rusty Nail, 1100 Constance Street, New Orleans, LA. Tucked away on the edge of the Warehouse District, The Rusty Nail can be a bit hard to find. But it's definitely worth looking for! 

THE JERICHO TREE by Michael Aaron Santos, directed by Phil Karnell, featuring: John Neisler, Wendy Neisler, and Mike Harkins.

An Indiana Jones meets Goodfellas theatrical rollercoaster; The Jericho Tree is a story of mystery, macabre and magic. Gavin, a seemingly unassuming college history professor, has a secret, one that his family has kept for two centuries, a small inconspicuous tree that possesses immense power. Karen, best-selling author and Gavin's ex fiancé, has formed an alliance with, of all people, the Italian Mafia to try and take the tree from Gavin. They soon discover however, that the tree's power is more difficult to control then they first thought. Malice and mayhem ensue as the characters fight for the fate of their souls while learning that being honest and being good are two very different things.   

Southern Rep presents 6X6: NEW PLAY SLAM at Mid-City Theatre. This month's theme is "Spy." The 6X6 Play Slam is a group of local playwrights who write 10-minute plays with a new theme every month, which are presented six times a year by Southern Rep Theatre. 6X6: NEW PLAY SLAM will take place Wednesday, June 26th, 2013 at 7:30pm, at Mid-City Theatre, 3540 Toulouse Street, New Orleans, LA. Tickets are just $10 at the door.

The 6X6 Play Slam, now in its third year, has featured more than 25 playwrights, 50 directors and 100s of actors. Check http://www.southernrep.com/ for the monthly schedule.
