Berkshire Playwrights Gala Enacts A Lively Scene
Jamie Larson reports from Great Barrington. For almost a decade now, the Berkshire Playwrights Lab has been both a sanctuary for artists and an intimate outlet for patrons to support exciting new stage works. At their gala last Friday at the picturesque Wyantenuck Country Club, party-goers were treated to a lively scene, a fabulous silent auction and the excellent company of writers, directors and actors associated with the Lab. The BPL has given writers invaluable resources and guidance to help make sure that the spark of inspiration turns into the next great theatrical work. Dozens of pieces have now come to life thanks to the Berkshire Playwrights Lab. [Pictured above, the three BPL co-artistic directors and the organization’s board chair: Matthew Penn, president Jim Frangione, VP Joe Cacaci and chair Stacey Gillis Weber.]
