Centenary Stage Company’s Women Playwright Series Will Begin With Abducted by Michele Aldin Kushner
On Wednesday, April 5th, 2023, Centenary Stage Company's Women Playwrights Series will begin with a reading of Abducted by Michele Aldin Kushner. It will take place at 7:30 pm in the Sitnik Theatre of the Lackland Performing Arts Center at 715 Grand Avenue, Hackettstown, NJ on the campus of Centenary University.
Abducted by Michele Aldin Kushner gives audiences the story of a successful businesswoman and mother of two grown children, Diane. Diane is getting her things in order. As she prepares for 'departure' from her present life, her daughter fights to get her psychiatric help. Her boyfriend wants to reclaim the woman with he fell in love - and her son wants to go with her. Is this departure being forced upon her or does she wish to live life on her own terms? The reading will feature the acting talents of Rosie McCooe, Clark Scott Carmichael, Ashley Kowzen, Christopher Rice, and Michael Jay. The reading is directed by Lauren Moran Mills.
