Delco Playwrights Showcased In Rutledge Festival — Julie Zaraffano of Broomall, Sandra Wade of Drexel Hill and Brigette ReDavid of Glen Mills are three area playwrights in the short play festival in Rutledge. Former Daily Times reporter Patti Mengers is one of the festival judges, along with Philadelphia Actor Anthony Wilcox and Director Raymond P. Smith.
“I love creating plays for lots of different characters but I especially love creating roles for women and mature women,” said Playwright Zaraffano who wrote the play Gamma Girls to the Rescue. “And I love showing mature women, who do not have dementia, who are women who have hopes and desires and dreams.”
While ReDavid’s play isn’t about women, the characters in Kearon & Kyle are definitely different, according to ReDavid. “But I’m not going to tell you anything else about them because it would spoil the fun,” ReDavid says of the play which has already run in Maryland and NYC.
The play The Skeptics is by Drexel Hill Playwright Sandra Wade. It features Drexel Hill actor and film producer Oliver Assiran.
Other playwrights include Rajiv Mallick of Pheonixville, Christopher Tait of Philadelphia, John O’Hare of Philadelphia, Tori Bond of Perkasie, Stephen Olsen of Connecticut, David Valdez of Florida, and Rex McGregor of New Zealand.
The show runs 4 to 8 p.m. Nov. 12. A silent auction, food and refreshments are available. Tickets are $20 at https://www.eventbrite.com/d/united-states–pennsylvania/off-page-play-festival/
