Ali MacLean participated in the Antaeus Playwrights Lab end of year play extravaganza. Each playwright selected was assigned three Antaeus company member or associate actors and instructed to write them into a ten-minute play.
MacLean created the short play Those People featuring Avery Clyde, Cherish Duke, and Antaeus founding member Tony Amendola. Those People is a dark Southern Gothic tale about family members called to a high school principal’s office to discuss a child’s behavior. The discussion dissolves into a disconcerting quagmire of class, race, and violence.
The event was held virtually due to the pandemic. The evening featured ten playwrights, showcasing the lab members’ writing and the company members’ acting.
