Joey Brenneman, a New York City playwright, will come to Clinton in cooperation with the Kidz Konnection’s professional acting company, Shoreline Actors Collective, on Saturday, April 9 at 7 p.m., at the Kidz Konnection Theater Studio, 16 West Main Street in Clinton, for a special free viewing of her latest work. The original play will be performed as a staged reading in a cabaret-style venue with light refreshments provided by the host company.

Brenneman’s story focuses on seven people mingling through a past, present, and future together and separately as they learn lessons about love, loss, and human connection.

The staged reading will offer a question and answer discussion afterwards. Local Connecticut actors will join professional actor Craig Waletzko, whose credits include Kinky Boots (national tour), Guys and Dolls (on Broadway), Monty Python’s Spamalot (national tour), and Cats (Broadway).

For more information or to reserve a seat, contact Laura Attanasio at 860-227-2363 or kidzkonnectionct@gmail.com. This event is free to the public; seats are limited.

Other works include Of Loss and Grace and Better Left Unsaid, the first play to be live-streamed worldwide over the Internet. Her play Off was a finalist for the 2014 Humana Festival and was produced by The Women’s Theater Project in Florida. She also produces and curates Above the Bridge, a monthly writing series in Northern Manhattan.
