Theater festival continues this month
SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. - The 17th annual Contemporary American Theater Festival (CATF) is looking for an audience with adventurous taste and is hungry for food for thought.
CATF is known for exciting productions that are fresh, powerful and encourage the audience to "thinktheater." This year, CATF is taking their tradition to a new level.
"This summer, we are taking big risks by producing four brand new works with no safety net of tradition," stated Ed Herendeen, producing director of CATF. "This is a summer to open your mind and really embrace art and culture."
The 2007 CATF season is now open and will run through July 29, featuring four plays: "My Name is Rachel Corrie" from the writings of Rachel Corrie, edited by Alan Rickman and Katharine Viner; "The Pursuit of Happiness" by Richard Dresser; "1001" by Jason Grote; and "Lonesome Hollow," a world premier by Lee Blessing.
