Issues Play: "I Belong Somewhere" Randolph Vermont

The winners in Chandler's 2017 competition for new plays on current social issues written by Vermont playwrights are Emily Rosenbaum of Stowe, Margot Lasher of East Montpelier, and Maura Campbell of Burlington.

On the last Sundays of February, March, and April, their three prize-winning scripts will be produced in staged readings in Chandler's Upper Gallery, as the Issues Play Series. With a 7 PM start, each reading will be followed by a talkback for actors and audiences to give feedback to the authors, who will attend. Complimentary refreshments will be available between the readings and the talkbacks.

Sunday February 25th: Emily Rosenbaum's play Precession, directed by Mike Backman, tells of two young men caught up in an interrogation program just after World War II. Based on an historical incident, it poses the age-old questions of science vs. humanity, and leaves the audience asking both how these questions pertain to our age and if these will ever be resolved.

Sunday March 25th: In Margot Lasher's play I Belong Somewhere, directed by Jeanne Beckwith, a small group of homeless people and animals gather in a vacant lot. They have all been affected by war, and they are protective of each other. Death is always close to their lives, and they struggle to understand what is happening and to stay together.

Sunday April 29th: In Maura Campbell's play Cross Talk, directed by Richard Waterhouse, 19-year-old Grassie is just out of detox and compelled to go to a Narcotics Anonymous meeting where he meets others like him, who are trying to get through each day without picking up a drug. Hope and love are manifested in their struggles to stay clean by relying on each other.

Tickets for adults are $10 in advance or $12 day-of-show. Full-series adult passes can be purchased for $25. Student tickets are $5 at all times. Tickets can be ordered by calling the Chandler Box Office at (802) 728-6464 between noon and 4 PM weekdays.
