Playwright Kay Rhoads to Attend Play Festival

The Thoroughbred Community Theater, The Kentucky Playwrights Workshop, and 517 Playwrights are pleased to announce that playwright Kay Rhoads will be attending the premiere of the “Midway Festival of Plays,” an evening of 10-minute plays that will be held Thursday Oct. 8 though Sunday Oct. 11 at the Theater located at 127 East Main Street in Midway, KY.

Ms Rhoads is the author of “Last Church of Lost Souls,” which chronicles a female inmate’s search for her mother’s grave. A native of Iowa, Rhoads was an administrator of programs and services at the state women’s prison; much of her writing reflects the struggles of women who have not had the encouragement or opportunity to develop their potential.

Ms. Rhoads has had plays produced in many U.S. cities, including her hometown of Des Moines, and has publishing credits in several anthologies. Recent productions include “Prison of Lost Souls” in San Diego, and “From the Backseat” and “Date Night” in Williamsburg, VA.“A Simple Matter of Fear”, produced in Des Moines in 2008, is scheduled for a three week run in New York City in 2010.

Ms Rhoads will be attending the Oct. 8 and 9th performances.
