BOSTON: Fresh Ink Theatre Company has announced its 2015–16 season with three plays that will receive a full development cycle, including a staged reading and a workshop before hitting the mainstage.
The season begins with Lizzie Milanovich’s It’s Not About My Mother (Dec. 4–12), a memory play about two half-sisters who reunite after their mother’s death.
Next will be Ginger Lazarus’s The Housekeeper, slated for winter 2016, about a housekeeper who takes a job for a widower and his daughter and is confronted by ghost of the deceased mother on the job.
Following will be MJ Halberstadt’s That Time the House Burned Down, which will run in the spring of 2016. This family drama is about sheltered children and their curiosity about life’s biggest questions.
Also included in the season is the Ink Spot staged reading series, which will take place in the fall of 2015 and will feature the development process of Vow Keepers and Rabbit Rabbit. Vow Keepers by David Valdes Greenwood is about a couple awakened by time-travelers who set out to ruin their big wedding day, and Rabbit Rabbit by Katie Grindeland is about a girl who is catapulted from childhood into womanhood, and accompanied by a storybook character for the unsettling journey.
