A chance to influence playwright's works

Cape Ann actors will read six original 10-minute plays penned by local playwrights this Saturday, April 27, at 7:30 p.m. at the the Rocky Neck Cultural Center at 6 Wonson St. in Gloucester.

The final step for a new play is to have directors put actors and the play on stage in front of an audience for feedback. The public is encouraged to attend to be a part of this stage reading. A reception will follow.

The writers involved are Carole Frohlich, Kent Bowker, Susan Frey, Jeana Grady, Ann McArdle, and Constance Shute.

Suggested donation is $10, $5 for students; no one will be turned away for lack of funds. For more information, visit

Spring showat Flatrocks

Flatrocks Gallery opens its spring exhibition “Fabrications,” featuring five artists dedicated to “transforming the ordinary,” this Saturday, April 27.

Though visually distinct, each body of work employs common materials in ways that play fragility against strength and continuity against temporality, according to a press release.

Dawn Southworth, combines a range of materials and processes to construct unified, emotionally charged imagery. Margaret Rack, a metal sculptor, offers playful wire “drawings.” Nina Fletcher is said to deploy commonplace materials with vision and wit, recycling histories into new stories. Sculptor and installation artist Caroline Bagenal animates space with delicate linear structures. Elizabeth Billings’ weavings use organic materials gathered locally to evoke intuitive experiences we all share.
