Screenplay Reading Series

Wednesday, January 9, 7pm
The Players Club
16 Gramercy Park South, NYC

Join us for two professionally cast and directed staged readings (by Caroline Sinclair Casting and Agnieszka Wójtowicz-Vosloo, respectively). The two unproduced screenplays were selected from among dozens of submissions judged by a panel of Guild members.

MY PEOPLE, written by David A. Taylor and Jim McGrath. Based on the book Soul of a People, by David A. Taylor.
For three young people, the job of reporting on America during the crisis of the century helped them discover who they were and put two on the path to fame. It also put them in the sights of a Congressional witch hunt.

THE PAINTING, written by Marygrace O'Shea, based on her play.
When an art restorer volunteers to clean a portrait she finds in her in-laws attic, she uncovers a secret that unravels her marriage, entangles her in a ring of art traffickers, and overturns history as we know it.

Each reading will be followed by a conversation between the writers and WGAE President Michael Winship. Afterward, please join the writers and actors for a reception at The Players Club at 8:30pm.
