An Angel with Flowers; Broadway Bound in 2017 BC [Before Covid-19]



The creation of a new theatrical work is a long process of writing, editing, rewriting, and more as the playwright brings characters and situations to life for the live audience. An important part of this is the workshop reading in which the piece is spoken in front of a live audience and the author seeks their reaction and input.

Join us as the Lewes Public Library Spoken Word Society hosts a second staged reading of local playwright Jeffrey Dailey’s work “An Angel with Flowers; Broadway Bound in 2017 BC [Before Covid-19]." From its premiere public reading last year, the work has been significantly reworked and edited. It tells a compelling story of a local Lewes couple’s interest in a painting that seems to hold a mystical attraction for one of them. They develop a friendship with the painter and in time learn of his secrets and of their own - leading to a surprising and moving twist in their lives.

The author will be on hand to answer questions and listen to suggestions and criticisms as an important part of the creative process.

Playwright Jeffrey Dailey’s pieces have garnered attention both in D.C. and in NYC. His piece "Winter and Summer in May" was given a reading and a workshop with “New Playwrights of D.C.” and was held under contract at NYC’s Circle in the Square. His one-act plays "Pola and Max", "Bus 2021", and "Barnaby & Newnipurr" have been used many times for acting workshops at the Herbert Berghof studio in Greenwich Village in NYC.

Seating is limited and registration is required.

The Lewes Spoken Word Society (LSWS) celebrates the tradition and artistry of oral storytelling through lectures, performances, discussions, demonstrations, and other publicly-shared experiences.
