Judson Memorial Church (55 Washington Sq. S, Manhattan)
7pm doors, 7:30pm start
To support the creative visionaries of the current Off-Off-Broadway world, Judson Memorial Church presents MAGIC TIME, a free monthly series of staged readings of fresh plays by the movement’s astonishing voices.
Each month, a new playwright is provided with free space, a small stipend, and whatever magic we can muster to conjure his or her vision to life in the very space where it all began, the Judson Memorial Church Meeting Room. What results is a party with a brand new play smack-dab in the middle of it.
Please join us to hear a reading of Josh Beerman’s UGLY that follows Fay, a social worker and single mother of an unruly teen, who is hired to write a history of the people involved in the murder of a Hasidic girl. As she finishes her report, unlikely revelations develop between parents and children and the lines between beauty and ugliness are blurred.
