Special Events

June Performances at WEST

In 2010 ACT ONE began presenting special theatre events in June at the West End Studio Theatre (WEST).  These June events have provided ACT ONE the opportunity to present readings of established works, such as A.R. Gurney’s Love Letters (2011) and Ancestral Voices (2015), and new works by local playwrights, such as Lester Dubow’s Look…There’s A Boat (2015).

The June performances have also allowed ACT ONE to MSIM-200-captionfocus on matters of local importance, from celebrating our region’s rich cultural history with Celia Thaxter & the Isles of Shoals (2010) to exploring critical social issues such as sexual assault with Joanna Rush’s one-woman production, Asking For It (2012), and blast-induced Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) in the military with Kate Wenner’s powerful play, Make Sure It’s Me (2013).

In 2017 ACT ONE will premiere Caroline Wood’s moving and wise story-told-in-letters, The Immigrant Garden, June 9-11 at the West End Studio Theatre in Portsmouth, NH.  For more information coming soon!
