Play Reading: Floaters by Scott Renderer

May 30 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join us for a reading of Floaters, a new play by Scott Renderer. The playwright and cast will collaborate to present a reading of the new work, followed by a talk-back (Q & A) with the audience and artists.

Written by Scott Renderer
Performed by Terry Young, Dylan Duffy, Martha Swann, Brian LaVallee, Susy Doolittle, Gabrielle Schutz, and Vanessa Pillen

ABOUT THE PLAY: Hailed as “brave and heroic,” artist Richard Lipsky successfully presents his disturbingly misogynistic wood sculptures called “Floaters” to the New York art scene as an emerging female artist. Encouraged to come clean and stop playing games by his new crush, Rachael, a transfeminine performance artist, the play Floaters is a journey into the hierarchies of art, identity, and power.

ABOUT THE PLAYWRIGHT: Before relocating to Upper Jay, Scott worked for decades as a theater artist in New York City, performing off-off Broadway, off-Broadway, and most notably on-Broadway in Eugene O’Neill’s play, The Hairy Ape, with The Wooster Group under the direction of Elizabeth LeCompte. As the Artistic Director of The Upper Jay Art Center, Scott directed & designed over 25 stage productions, collaborating with nonprofessional actors from the Adirondack community. As a playwright, his work has been read and performed in New York City and elsewhere. He is particularly sentimental about the Recovery Lounge production of “Nick (A Christmas Pageant).” He wrote, directed, and designed the 23-character project, and performed the title role of Nick Nolte who partied hard with the folks at 20 Main in Ausable Forks.
