It's time for the second round of readings for Playwrights Theatre of New Jersey's Emerging Women's Playwrights Project. The Frozen War will have a reading as part of the Arts on Division Festival in Somerville, NJ on Saturday May 19 at 7:00 pm. The script is a comedy set in a small Puerto Rican city. There are wacky high jinks, impossible dreams, and ice. Piragua...limber...lots of flavored ice.
Seventeen-year-old Alondra must face her fear of the unknown when she helps her mother start a homemade frozen treat business. Several obstacles threaten to foil the new venture—including a scheming flavored-shaved-ice vendor who believes his livelihood is on the line. Meanwhile, a hot skater boy dares Alondra to take her own risks, much to the chagrin of her mother.
I'm lucky to be one of four women participating in Playwrights Theatre of New Jersey's New Jersey Emerging Women's Playwrights Project, a program created and headed by artistic director John Pietrowski.
