The Warner Theatre in Torrington is hosting the 9th annual Playwrights Festival virtually this year beginning November 6 with “The Ties That Bind” – from the Nancy Marine Studio Theatre beginning at 7 p.m. In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, this will be a virtual event. Each production will be available to view online for a period of two weeks before being taken down. There is no fee to watch but donations are always accepted. This virtual festival is made possible with a generous donation from The Marine Family.
Tonight’s production is FINAL REST by Victoria Z. Daly from Connecticut, and stars our very own Isabel Carrington and Emily Creighton from the Warner Theatre Center for Arts Education!
ABOUT FINAL REST by Victoria Z. Daly (CT) Directed by Sharon W. Houk. Chris returns to her empty childhood home to help resentful sister Beth sprinkle Mom’s ashes in the backyard garden. Time’s up the house will be sold tomorrow. But Chris, unprepared to let go, proposes a plan that threatens to ruin everything. FINAL REST will remain available for viewing until November 19 at 11:59 pm. To view the show click here.
