    A Festival of Short Plays by Contemporary American Playwrights

    Writers Workshop. In response to our call for submissions, we received 317 scripts from 36 states, 5 Canadian provinces, and 5 other countries. After five rounds of blind readings, the list was trimmed down to 24 semi-finalists. All twenty-four plays were given a cold read in front of our panel of twelve judges. By July, we had chosen our 8 short plays to be presented this fall at our black box theater. The featured playwrights are from California, Maryland, Massachusetts, and New York. Each of these playwrights has an impressive résumé and each has earned artistic distinction either with awards, production credits, and/or being featured in distinguished publications.

    Eight TASN directors stepped up to mount the plays. We held open auditions for actors and met or were reacquainted with 29 wonderfully talented actors. We are excited to be presenting these well-crafted plays as they represent points of view and sensitivities at many levels of the human experience. According to Executive Director, Marc Clopton, "This is a great opportunity to match up our local team with writers from across the country to present a truly remarkable festival of plays." The themes run from a jarring and hilarious send up of Tennessee Williams "Glass Menagerie," to a compelling conversation about violence and recovery, and into the uncharted emotional territory of adoption - just to highlight a few.

    It's time for the 24th Annual MRFRS Fur Ball and Gala! Mark this date on your calendars: Saturday, November 10, 2018 at the Andover Country Club, 60 Canterbury Street, Andover.

    Our theme for this year’s Fur Ball is, “Tails with Tales.” While we know every cat (or most of them!) has a “tail,” every cat that MRFRS assists through your generosity has a “tale:” an emotional story about how it receives the love, care and support it richly deserves. We’ll be sharing some of these “tales” during our Fur Ball program.

    If you’re a Fur Ball veteran, you know how much fun it is to gather with fellow cat lovers to celebrate MRFRS’ work and raise funds for cats in need. If you’ve never attended, here’s what you’re missing:
    -Our fabulous host, Randy Price, and the opportunity to be included in the WCVB Channel 5 Eyeopener News “Wake Up Call”
    -Hundreds of live and silent auction items for all tastes in all price ranges
    -Cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and a delicious dinner and ice cream bar!
    -Music, raffles and more!
