PTE Adult Company presents short plays by Theresa Rebeck.
Rebeck is a prolific contemporary American writer in Theatre, Film, and Television. Most notable plays include Seminar, Spike Heels, The Understudy, and The Scene. Films include Harriet the Spy, Gossip, and Catwoman. For television she has written for Law and Order: Criminal Intent, Smash, and LA Law. Rebeck is a highly accomplished writer, with an M.A. in English, an M.F.A. in dramatic writing and a Ph.D. in Victorian literature.
Rebeck’s writing is called Edgy, Snappy, Acerbic, and Highly Comedic. Critics have praised Rebeck’s success in injecting the female voice into contemporary culture. Rebeck is quoted as saying, “I would rather work in the theater than anywhere else, and it does seem to be a place where stories can and should be told purely.” Rebeck’s plays often look at gender, sex, and ambition in American Contemporary Culture in a very clever, witty and sarcastic manner. She is also quoted as saying, “It's not my responsibility to write plays about the way the world should be.”
This year’s Adult Company includes performances by David Breckman, Susan Finnigan, Micheline Girardin, Robert Gregoire, Susan Smiel and Allan Scheirer.
