The Press Release Has Been…Released
While Arizona Theatre Company gave the okay a while back for me to share the news, it now feels more official with a press release.
Marisela Treviño Orta’s The River Bride and Caridad Svich’s Spark as co-winners of the 2013 National Latino Playwriting Award. This is the first time Arizona Theatre Company has acknowledged two winners. Both playwrights will receive a $1000 award in recognition for their work.
Three days before a wedding, a handsome and mysterious man is fished from the Amazon River. Set once upon a time in a small Brazilian fishing village, Orta’s The River Bride is a tale of true love, regret and two sisters who struggle to be true to each other and their hearts. Orta wrote The River Bride as an installment of a Grimm fairytale-like series she is writing for the stage. She wrote and developed the play while participating in AlterLab. AlterTheater will premiere The River Bride in the fall of 2013.
“The River Bride is a visually striking fairytale infused with lyrical language and steeped in the folklore of the Amazon,” said ATC Playwright-in-Residence Elaine Romero.
Now I feel able to send The River Bride out to theatres.
I have a list.
If you want to be on that list, contact me.
