Bill McCann's 10-minute play THERE IS NO WRIGLEY FIELD will be given a staged reading at the Mid-America Theatre Conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota on Friday March 5, 2011 as part of the conference's Playwriting Symposium. The play will be directed by Phylis Ravel, Marquette University with Martine Kei Green, University of Wisconsin-Madison, serving as dramaturg.
The play takes place in the minutes between the time "David" gets home-- and announces that he wants to leave and consider whether or not he wants to leave his 20 year marriage to "Rita"-- and when Rita pulls rolls for dinner out of the oven. David is to be played by Eric Thibodeaux-Thompson, University of Illinois-Springfield. Rita will be performed by Missy Thibodeaux-Thompson, University of Illinois-Springfield.
