With the latest Star Wars having opened yesterday, an appropriate pick for #13 in our accompanying 20 DAYS OF ESSENTIAL PLAYS series is SALLY AND GLEN AT THE PALACE.
Penned by artistic director Peter Hardy, SALLY AND GLEN AT THE PALACE premiered as part of the 2010 Essential Theatre Play Festival, where it ended up on “Best of the Year” lists for both The Sunday Paper and Atlanta Theater Buzz, while Hardy was Creative Loafing’s Critic’s Pick for Best Atlanta Playwright.
Since that time, the play has been read and produced more than once, most recently by Atlanta’s own Out of Box theatre earlier this year.
How does having a local playwright as the artistic director of a theatre company benefit other local playwrights, you ask? Gabriel Jason Dean, whose play QUALITIES OF STARLIGHT was the Essential Theatre Playwriting Award winner that same year, offers this insight: “A sharp playwright himself, Peter really knows how to talk to writers.”
