It's a busy month for award-winning playwright and Lecturer Laura Harrington of music and theater arts and her new play, Hallowed Ground. The play, which takes place in the last days of the Civil War, will receive its Boston premiere at the Boston Playwrights Theatre (BPT) on January 18-29, and will be staged January 25-29 at the University of Alabama at Tuscaloosa, where it recently won a new play contest called Janusfest. On January 31, the play will receive a staged reading at the Women's Project in New York City.
In addition, Hallowed Ground and Joan of Arc, an earlier play by Ms. Harrington, are finalists in the New Harmony Project in New Harmony, IN, a theater conference where authors work on prizewinning scripts in a workshop situation. Winners will be selected in March.
Tickets for the BPT performances are $15, $10 students. For reservations, call (781) 283-9029 or (617) 353-5443.
