"A pair of star-crossed lovers"

— Romeo and Juliet, Prologue

An age-old vendetta between two powerful families erupts into bloodshed. A group of masked Montagues risk further conflict by gatecrashing a Capulet party. A young lovesick Romeo Montague falls instantly in love with Juliet Capulet, who is due to marry her father’s choice, the County Paris. With the help of Juliet’s nurse, the women arrange for the couple to marry the next day, but Romeo’s attempt to halt a street fight leads to the death of Juliet’s own cousin, Tybalt, for which Romeo is banished. In a desperate attempt to be reunited with Romeo, Juliet follows the Friar’s plot and fakes her own death. The message fails to reach Romeo, and believing Juliet dead, he takes his life in her tomb. Juliet wakes to find Romeo’s corpse beside her and kills herself. The grieving family agree to end their feud.

Description:
The Magnetic Theatre Company is proud to present the regional premiere of Paula Vogel’s Tony Award-nominated play, Indecent, with performances running August 2 – August 25, 2019 at the theatre’s intimate venue in the heart of Asheville’s River Arts District. For tickets, go to themagnetictheatre.org, or call 828-239-9250. In Indecent, an ensemble of 10 actors and musicians follow the trajectory of Sholem Asch’s controversial play God of Vengeance, the first play by a Jewish playwright to open on Broadway. Asch’s play, which sketches out a budding romance between two young women, featuring a luminous scene of them dancing in an onstage rain, is a hit in Europe. But when it arrives in America, on Broadway, in 1923, the entire cast is arrested for obscenity. Writing from varied points of view and with a lot of humor, Ms. Vogel relates the impact this revolutionary play has on its stage manager, Lemml (Asheville actor Daniel Sandoval), acting troupe, and the audiences who witness it. In addition to Mr. Sandoval, actors playing multiple roles are Asheville area actors Doug Savitt, Mary Katherine O’Donnell, Lara Holloway, Stan Baranowski, and Daniel Moore. Asheville director, and Magnetic Theatre’s co-Artistic Director, Andrew Gall, directs. Ginger Haselden, a veteran area music director, will bring the play’s score of original and historic songs together with an ensemble of live musicians. Playwright Paula Vogel developed this play alongside director Rebecca Taichman, blending actual text from the original God of Vengeance script, trial manuscripts, and letters to create this haunting and beautiful story. The play had a critically acclaimed Broadway run following its World-Premiere at Yale Repertory Theatre. The Magnetic Theatre is presenting the first production of the play in the region.

ABOUT THE GHOSTS OF EDEN PARK The epic true crime story of the most successful bootlegger in American history and the murder that shocked the nation. In the early days of Prohibition, long before Al Capone became a household name, a German immigrant named George Remus quits practicing law and starts trafficking whiskey. Within two years he's a multi-millionaire. The press calls him King of the Bootleggers, writing breathless stories about the Gatsby-esque events he and his glamorous second wife, Imogene, host at their Cincinnati mansion, with party favors ranging from diamond jewelry for the men to brand-new Pontiacs for the women. By the summer of 1921, Remus owns 35 percent of all the liquor in the United States. Pioneering prosecutor Mabel Walker Willebrandt is determined to bring him down. Willebrandts bosses at the Justice Department hired her right out of law school, assuming shed pose no real threat to the cozy relationship they maintain with Remus. Eager to prove them wrong, she dispatches her best investigator, Franklin Dodge, to look into his empire. Its a decision with deadly consequences. With the fledgling FBI on the case, Remus is quickly imprisoned for violating the Volstead Act. Her husband behind bars, Imogene begins an affair with Dodge. Together, they plot to ruin Remus, sparking a bitter feud that soon reaches the highest levels of government and that can only end in murder. Combining deep historical research with novelistic flair, The Ghosts of Eden Park is the unforgettable, stranger-than-fiction story of a rags-to-riches entrepreneur and a long-forgotten heroine, of the excesses and absurdities of the Jazz Age, and of the infinite human capacity to deceive. All sales are final.

Join us Thursday, September 5, 2019 at 6:30pm for a reading and book signing celebrating In The Way of All Flesh, the debut YA novel by Flatiron Writers Room alum Caitlin Donovan. This event is free but your RSVP will help us plan. Books will be available for sale at the event. Light refreshments will be served. In the Way of All Flesh tells the story of gloomy teenager Manee Srikwan, who wears long sleeves and keeps her hands to herself for a good reason–whenever she touches a person for the first time, she sees a vision of how they will die. Manee’s weird powers cause those around her nothing but misery and she’s long resigned herself to a life of loneliness. But her vivacious classmate, Stephanie Pierce, changes all that. She smashes through every wall Manee puts up and overturns every expectation. Much to Manee’s shock, Stephanie believes her about her powers. What’s more, she insists they can stop the deaths Manee sees from happening. When the two of them are together, it feels like they can do anything. As the girls grow closer, Manee’s feelings for Stephanie blossom into love. She yearns to be more intimate but is anxious about breaking her all-important “hands-off” rule. When she finally gives in to temptation, she sees a terrifying future where Stephanie is murdered—and Manee is her killer!  Now Manee has a choice to make—will she fight this fate or let it rule her? Caitlin Donovan is a writer, teacher, blogger, poet and, above all, a huge geek for fiction (especially fantasy). Her dream of being an author began in the third grade when she started scribbling down stories about twin detectives and murderous ghosts in stray notebooks. Her passion only grew with age. Now she has an MFA in writing from Queens University in Charlotte and she has been published in several literary journals, including The Great Smokies Review. She has written professionally about fantasy, sci-fi and pop culture for several online companies. When not creating novels, Caitlin works as an online ESL teacher and does freelance writing. She currently resides in Asheville with her trouble-making cat.

Description:
In your stories, novels, and flash fiction, your ability to control and fine tune the time sense of the piece – from the time frame of the story, to the implications of tense and points of telling, to the ways characters and readers experience time – can make the difference between an interesting, promising draft and a fluid, accomplished piece. In this workshop, we’ll explore the temporal in fiction, and the various craft and technical options you might use in representing time and guiding reader perception. We’ll think about architecture and sequencing, narrative decisions, echo and repetition, movement within scenes, real-world elements and temporal markers, and syntactical and sentence level choices, among other possibilities.  Class meets Saturday, September 7, 2019, 1pm-3:30pm.  Cost: $45 General Admission, $40 for current FWR Co-Working members.  To register by check instead of Eventbrite, mail your check and a valid email address to the Flatiron Writers Room, 5 Covington Street, Asheville, NC 28806. You will be registered when we receive your check, space permitting. Need-based partial scholarships available for this workshop. For more information click HERE.

Different Strokes! Performing Arts Collective presents “The Education of Ted Harris” written by Jamie Knox Can there be a ‘gray area’ when it comes to consent? On the heels of the #metoo movement, Different Strokes! Performing Arts Collective opens their 2019-2020 season, in the new Tina McGuire Theatre, with the world premiere of The Education of Ted Harris, by Jamie Knox. The play deals with complex issues like sexuality, regret, implied consent, and the secrets we keep from the people we love. “When I initially read the play, I thought, this is a great response to the #metoo campaign, speaking to the gray area between consent and misunderstanding,” says Managing Artistic Director Stephanie Hickling Beckman. “When we think about how many celebrities have found themselves under public scrutiny, and facing jail time for rape and other acts of sexual misconduct, it was only a matter of time before DSPAC took on the topic.” The play tells the story of a family, each struggling in their own way to deal with the sickness of their matriarch while coping with inconvenient troubles in their own personal lives. The eldest son returns home after a six-year absence and struggles to reconnect with the loved ones he left behind. The audience watches their story unfold in flashbacks and real-time, revealing the complexities of their characters and a secret that brews just below the surface. This provocative piece of storytelling explores how easily physical intimacy can be misconstrued as emotional intimacy and how consent can be assumed wrongly. “Struck by the gray areas floating to the surface of the #metoo movement,” says Knox. “I knew I wanted there to be a secret of great proportion that would rattle the family. I didn’t know whose secret it was but I just kept typing". In keeping with their mission to assist community partners whose work aligns with themes of the play, a portion of ticket sales from The Education of Ted Harris will benefit Our Voice, of North Carolina. In the pursuit of a community that is free of sexual violence, Our VOICE serves all individuals in Buncombe County affected by sexual assault and abuse through counseling, advocacy, and education. The play features Daniel Henry, Anna Lyles, Kaelyn Brandt, Alexandra McPherson, David Mycoff, Samantha Spiegel and Jim Abbott. For additional information about Different Strokes!

Description:
Adapted for the stage by Howard Craft; based on the book by Dr. David Cecelski; performed by Mike Wiley Mike Wiley returns to NC Stage with an illuminating depiction of Abraham Galloway. The story of this significant black leader deepens our insight into the Civil War and Reconstruction as experienced by African Americans in the South. Throughout his brief, mercurial life, Galloway fought slavery and injustice, risked his life behind enemy lines, recruited black soldiers for the North, and fought racism in the Union army’s ranks.
