Starting March 17 and going through March 19, Shakespeare and Company is presenting readings of plays by Joan Ackerman. Joan lives in the Berkshires. Thirty-five years ago she and Gillian Seidl co-founded Mixed Company, a theatre in Great Barrington. Mixed Company not only produces Joan’s plays, but also the work of contemporary British and American playwrights.
Joan has written for magazines and television. When her play Off the Map was made into a movie, she wrote the script. We had the pleasure of talking with Joan and look forward to a first reading of her new play, Out of the Blue Sunday, March 19. For a complete schedule of the readings of Joan’s plays, go to Shakespeare and Company’s website by clicking below after listening to the interview with Joan.
