APH Readers Theater Troupe Presents a Festival of New Plays

Louisville, Kentucky (March 2, 2015) – The Museum of the American Printing House for the Blind (APH) will offer two free performances of four new plays. The plays resulted from a series of playwriting workshops taught by Kentucky playwright and poet Constance Alexander at the Museum last fall.

All the plays are presented as Readers Theater. There are no sets, no special lighting, and minimal costumes and props. The actors, who are all blind or visually impaired, read from embossed braille scripts. They use gestures appropriate for their characters and intonation appropriate for their characters’ words. This is the fourth year for APH Readers Theater. The troupe performed The Miracle Worker in 2012, Much Ado About Nothing in 2013, and the Curious Savage in 2014. This is the first year members of the group have written the plays, themselves.

The event is free to the public but space is limited, so registration is required. Call 502-899-2213 or email email hidden; JavaScript is required by March 12 to register. The program is appropriate for teens and adults.
