Faigen back with new comedy

Port playwright Joshua Faigen: All about logistics
Those familiar with Newburyport playwright Joshua Faigen know his plays are either very serious and/or poetic and/or very funny. “McFarland,” his latest, falls into the latter category. It’s an exceedingly funny production — maybe the best Faigen comedy to date. It’s not a tale of sweeping romance, or a swashbuckling adventure. It is not based on a true story. No animals were harmed in its production. It is simply a comedy about four lovably unscrupulous swindlers, two of whom are named Irving. It's also about logistics. It will be presented at the North Shore Readers Theater Collaborative as a staged reading at the Actors Studio, 50 Water St., Newburyport— that’s the Tannery, boys and girls — at the truly ungodly hour of 10 a.m. on Oct. 14. Featured performers will be Jesiah Hammond, Kimberly Holliday, Allan Mayo and Robert Murphy. Hailey Klein directs. They’ll be looking for a $10 donation at the door, if you’ve got it. And if you wake up in time. Give them a shout if you need more information. The number is 978-465-1229.
