Berkshire Playwrights Lab Rocks the Mahaiwe

Rural Intelligence Parties and OpeningsThe Berkshire Playwrights Lab kicked of the summer theater season at its gala at the Mahaiwe on May 21 with an evening of staged readings of seven new one-act plays featuring actors such as Jay Thomas, Dan Lauria, Treat Williams, Elizabeth Franz, Lauren Ambrose and Kristen Johnston.  BPL’s artistic directors—Joe Cacaci, Jim Frangione, Bob Jaffe and Matthew Penn—welcomed the audience with a one-act play about four artistic directors debating how to welcome the audience to a gala. After the performance, BPL hosted a jam-packed reception at Allium for the cast, crew and supporters.
