Event Notes


Jane, Queens's Foole by Barbara Blatner - It's the 16th Century, The reign of the Tudors, King Henry VIII. Jane, a "crazy," starving country girl by chance encounters Princess Mary Tudor, Henry VIII's rejected daughter becoming the first female Foole of the court. Amidst Bawdy humor, tumblers, and an entertaining, poetic hand, we join two very different women as they bond finding agency in the male-centric English court.

Initiated in 1992 to provide a working platform for the under-served voices of women writing for the theatre, CSC's Women Playwrights Series (WPS) has now featured and helped to develop the new work of over 60 playwrights from around the country, and produced fifteen World Premieres in as many years, from works developed in the playwright series. Plays presented in the developmental WPS program are finalists in the Susan Glaspell Award Competition, and are under consideration for full production in a subsequent season at the Centenary Stage Company, the professional theatre in residence on the campus of Centenary University.
