"You Shouldn't Be Laughing At This Revue"

What's funnier than a mob hit or a father feeding cheeseburgers until his young son is about to burst? The ART Mission Playwright Group presents "You Shouldn't Be Laughing At This Revue," April 19th at 7:30pm. This collection of short comedies explores the minds of dangerous criminals and wanton monsters, and cats watching owners doing something not so appropriate. Group writers and performers include WSKG's Bill Snyder, Kellie Powell of the Binghamton City Stage, and Paul Juser, author of "VOTE NUGE," and Laugh at Yourself First, as well as James Gonda, David Rasey, John Moynihan, and Darren Tully. "You Shouldn't Be Laughing At This Revue," will have you laughing with the antics of a traffic violator that insists he has a body in the trunk, and then give you a summer vacation that is more work than it's worth. There is no admission cost, but all donations benefit the The ART Mission & Theater.
The ART Mission Playwright Group meets twice a month to read and critique new scripts. Members utilize decades of combined experience writing and performing for a live audience to advise playwrights in revision. More importantly, writers hear their words aloud. Formerly Theatricks by Starlight's Playwright Unit, the AMPG has been working with new writers since 2004, producing 19 original plays at such diverse venues around Binghamton as Roberson Museum & Science Center, the Schor Family Firehouse Stage, and Flashbacks night club. The group moved to the ART Mission Theatre in 2009. In addition to workshops, they have presented staged readings of new plays, including "Mother of Blue Stars," by Gonda, and Juser's "Man-In-Sea," a story inspired by the life of Edwin A. Link Jr. Workshops also include exercises and group writings. The scenes in "You Shouldn't Be Laughing At This Revue" is the first show written together, and the group plans more performances in the future.
