ACT and Trial and Error Productions have partnered on ACTLocal, a series of workshops and play readings spotlighting eight local playwrights and the development of new, contemporary work.
ACT launches ACT@Home on Thursday, August 20 with the ACTLocal Playwright Series, conversations with these playwrights. First up: Core Company members Keiko Green and Kirsten Potter.
Kirsten is a founding member of the Core Company and has appeared in a number of ACT productions including Big Love, One Slight Hitch, Rapture, Blister, Burn, Daisy and Dangerous Liaisons. Her play Rubicon brings the story of real life spy, Betty Pack, to life.
As the world makes its way into a second war, Betty Pack makes her debut into Washington society. Smart, sexy and daring, she is poised to take her place among the social elite. Instead, in this thrilling spy caper based on actual events, she uses her beauty and brains to seduce diplomats and steal secrets to help bring down the Nazi regime. But along the way, Betty realizes “wars are not won by respectable people,” and victory will come at a cost.
Get caught up with Kirsten and don’t miss her conversation with Keiko Green Thursday, August 20.
