IAMA celebrates 10 years with readings of first six ‘Deadly Plays’ by Leslye Headland

Seventh play to get world premiere production in May
 

WHAT:
The Seven Deadly Plays
 — IAMA continues its 10th anniversary celebration with readings of six plays, all produced and premiered by IAMA over the past decade, from Leslye Headland’s viciously funny seven-play cycle exploring ancient sins in the context of contemporary culture:Cinephilia (“lust”), directed by Eli Gonda, in which two cinephiles cling to their obsessions with film and sex as a way to validate their relationship; Bachelorette (“gluttony”), directed by James Eckhouse, a wicked black comedy about female friendship and growing up in an age of excess that was adapted into the 2012 film starring Kirsten Dunst and Rebel Wilson; Surfer Girl (“sloth”), directed by Christine Woods, one woman’s haunting recount of her transient voyager lifestyle, from one idolized couch to the next; Assistance (“greed”),directed by Blake Silver, a biting, high-octane satire about our attraction to power and what we’re willing to sacrifice to stay in its orbit; Reverb (“wrath”), directed by Keliher Walsh, in which history threatens to repeat itself as troubled lovers purge mutual pain by inflicting it on each other; and The Accidental Blonde (“envy”), directed by Diana Wyenn, a disturbingly humorous look at jealousy, work and success in the cyber-stalking generation. Watch for the world premiere of the seventh and final play in the cycle, Cult of Love (“pride”), in a full production this May.
