This staged reading in the Port Theatre lobby is directed by TheatreOne’s Artistic Director David Mann. He comments, “We are thrilled to embark on a new play development project with playwright Jennifer Wynne Webber, who made such a positive impression on TheatreOne’s audience with her hit play With Glowing Hearts: How Ordinary Women Worked Together to Change the World (And Did).
The workshop and public reading of Jennifer’s new play Wild Geese will be the first step in a continuing process of development with the intended goal of mounting a production of the play in TheatreOne’s MainStage Series in the not-too-distant future. The public reading is a great chance to be in on the first stage of this exciting process.”
