By Many Young Playwrights.
Cast: 4 to 7m., 6 to 8 w. Another celebration of young talent, this new, full evening of theatre was created, like Glimpses, by those participating in the Walden Theatre program for young playwrights. The importance of this work lies in the young writers' ability to express the universality of youth. The material glows with the brightness of present experience, and therein lies its overwhelming appeal to young audiences. The work concerns relationships, both inside and outside the family, and it includes the brilliant, insightful "Point/Counterpoint," "Fuel for Thought," and "Golden Gun/Diamond Bullet," along with connective short pieces. Some of the work is by the exciting playwrights who created Glimpses, but they're a year older now and there's an intriguing difference. Rites offers a chance to create new horizons. Bare stage.
