The Human Race is excited to announce our virtual reading of a comedy by Michael Slade – Garden Politics.
In a twist on our usual playreading series in The Loft Theatre, this presentation will be available for a nationwide audience to stream:
November 13 – 18, 2020
“This marks our second virtual playreading since our COVID shut down in March,” states Human Race Artistic Director and Founding Member, Kevin Moore. This project also marks the company’s sixth project with playwright Michael Slade since 2008, including three world premieres (Change, Under A Red Moon and Family Shots). Slade is a three-time Emmy Award winner for Writing and Co-Creating the hit series After Forever, streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
Described as a romantic comedy about people of “a certain age” who find love while battling City Hall, Garden Politics is directed by Human Race Resident Artist and Founding Member, Scott Stoney+. The cast includes Resident Artist Patricia Linhart+*, and Dayton actors Saul Caplan and Libby Holley Scancarello. Video Editing is provided by Shaunn Baker of WorldStage Media.
Join us and our streaming partner, BroadwayOnDemand, on this new creative venture. Keep an eye out for future announcements about other Human Race productions and partnerships with sister theatres across the country!
