"Hate Mail" Presented by Lyceum Hall Center for the Arts in Collaboration with The Bridge Players Theatre Company

Hate Mail is an epistolary play something like Love Letters, with two actors reading letters and other correspondence, but it's a little wilder and more hysterically funny. It tells the story of Preston, a spoiled rich kid who meets his match in Dahlia, an angst-filled artist. Their worlds collide when Preston sends a complaint letter that gets Dahlia fired from her job, and then there's no turning back. The play stays with their increasingly crazed correspondence as they move from hate to love, and then right back again.

Come join in the fun!

How to Submit Your Play So Your Work Gets Produced with Playwright, Stephen Kaplan

How to Submit Your Play So Your Work Gets Produced with Playwright, Stephen Kaplan

How To Submit So Your Plays Get Produced: a workshop talking about best practices in sharing your work, networking, record keeping, and more will be presented by Lyceum Hall Center for the Arts on Sunday, June 11 from 11 AM to 1 PM. The seminar is free. Lyceum Hall is located at 432 High St, Burlington City, NJ.

This workshop is designed to inspire writers to market their work more effectively. You hear it all the time: the only difference between unproduced playwrights and produced playwrights is that produced playwrights get their work seen by the decision makers. That translates to submissions and networking, a daunting task we'd like to simplify. This workshop covers resources for finding opportunities, tips for easier submission, success stories from cold calls, and remote networking.

After Stephen’s presentation of this workshop at the DG National Conference in La Jolla, and at DG events in Ohio, Atlanta, Pittsburgh, and Baltimore, we are so excited to finally have a chance to offer it here in Burlington City.  

Practices Committee for Festivals and Competitions. In addition to their productions, Stephen Kaplan's plays have won the New American Comedy Showcase Award, NJ Playwrights Contest, DezArt Performs' Reading Series, Across the Generations New Jewish Play Festival, and have been finalists for the Woodward-Newman Drama Award, Seven Devils, Landing Theatre New American Voices, Route 66 Development Award, March Forth Salon, and Road Less Traveled National Residency, and semi-finalists for O'Neill, PlayPenn, Ashland New Play Festival, and MTWorks' Newborn Festival. He is the NJ Regional Representative for the Dramatists Guild of America and serves on their Best Practices Committee for Festivals and Competitions. www.bystephenkaplan.com

The event is free of charge and is open to both DG members and non-members. Feel free to bring a friend who you feel may benefit from membership in the Dramatists Guild. 

RSVP by Thursday, June 8 to Stephen Kaplan at skaplan@dramatistsguild.com

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Please note: Bring a laptop or notebook or pad of paper and get ready to jump into summer with a newfound confidence in sharing your work.

Guerilla Haiku Movement Comes to Burlington!

Guerilla Haiku Movement Comes to Burlington!

Did you ever write a haiku? Have you ever thought how haiku poetry could create community? Caley Vickerman, Haiku Mistress from the Guerilla Haiku Movement explains the power of community haiku. In this era of hyperstimulation - people are feeling increasingly isolated, even in the places (cities, neighborhood, communities) where we are supposed to feel connected.  Guerilla Haiku uses haiku poetry as a tool (simple, elegant, structured and precise) to empower residents of a neighborhood to reconnect with the spaces around them, the strangers they pass every day and, inevitably themselves. Haiku, because of their brief structure (3 lines with 5 syllables in the 1st line, 7 in the 2nd, 5 in the 3rd) empower people to share stories and surprise participants with their own ability to engage in creative play.  The result is a group of people reinvigorated by these new connections to invest more deeply in the communities in which they live and move. Powerful words that emphasize the importance of connection. And in this case, connection through haiku. 

Caley will begin with begin her day in Burlington City at Lyceum Hall Center for the Arts, 432 High Street where she will meet with teens and adults, including City Council members and police officers, who form her Haiku Scavenging Team. After an instructional meeting, the team will hit the streets. We’ll break for lunch/snacks at 2 PM (bring a bagged lunch with your name on it!). Then, a 3 PM talkback is scheduled with Caley and open for anyone who would like to learn more about this community building project. Caley will install a temporary art exhibit using the haiku gathered earlier in the day. This exhibit is open to the public On June 3rd at 3pm and again June 6th through June 16th weekdays only from 11 AM until 2 PM.

Have a few hours? From 11am-2pm Join a haiku scavenging team to gather haiku by starting conversations in the neighborhood around the Lyceum. Then share your experiences with other participants. 

Have an hour? At 3pm Enjoy a talkback about the Guerilla Haiku experience at the Lyceum led by Caley Vickerman, founder of Guerilla Haiku and hear highlights from the participants. 

Have a few minutes? Stop by the Lyceum at any time from 11am-2pm to leave behind a 17-syllable haiku sharing YOUR story. You can leave your haiku in a basket on the table in the hallway.
