Guest playwright Anna Moench will offer a “talk-back” after the opening performance on Thursday night, November 1, 2012, of In Quietness at IUP’s Theater-by-the-Grove. The play will be performed November 1–3 and 7–10 at 8:00 p.m., and November 4 at 2:00 p.m. on Waller Hall Mainstage, IUP Performing Arts Center.
In Quietness is a touching and often funny story of a man called by God and his wife, a former CEO, who are beginning a new chapter of their lives at a Southern Baptist seminary. The play explores the difficulties of fitting oneself into a box and why, given how difficult it is, we all try so hard to do it.
Moench recently received the 2012–2013 Jerome Fellowship from the Playwright’s Center, a national resource for playwrights located in Minneapolis, Minn. Her work was selected for production as the department’s annual contribution to the National Theater Conferences’ Initiative to Celebrate American Women Playwrights, by providing production opportunities necessary for developing and expanding their creative voices.
