DTF Pipeline Series Opens
Dorset Theatre Festival (DTF), under the leadership of artistic director Dina Janis and producing director Will Rucker, will open its acclaimed Pipeline Series of three one-night presentations of new works with ‘Panelists’ by Sofia Alvarez on Tuesday, July 2. Alvarez was the screenwriter for the recent hit film, ‘To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before’ on Netflix, which received an MTV Movie and TV Award nomination for Best Movie. ‘Panelists’ will be presented at the Dorset Playhouse on Tuesday, July 2, at 7:30 p.m. It follows Jillian, Alex, Howard, Mandy, and Susannah who all got their MFAs in playwriting from the same prestigious university. Now, each bearing a cross as varied as their writing careers, they reunite in the same hallowed halls for an alumni panel discussion. Drinks flow as heavily as truth bombs in this bright new comedy about friendships that don’t stand the test of time. “Sofia has such a fresh, truthful, and quite funny take on our times. This play is one we are very interested in for the future, and we are excited to share it with our audiences as we start our second annual Pipeline Series,” said Janis. Director Jade King Carroll, known by Dorset audiences for her work on 2018’s ‘Skeleton Crew’ by Dominique Morisseau, will be joined by a cast including Margaret Ivey, Brian Miskell, Ugo Chukwu, Meredith Holtzman and Teresa Lim.
DTF builds upon its growing reputation as an incubator for up-and-coming American plays with the Pipeline Series, a cutting edge series of new works destined to become tomorrow’s classics. Get your tickets at 802-867-2223 or dorsettheatrefestival.org.
