New play ‘The Point’ performed at the Antaeus short play night.

Ali MacLean participated in the Antaeus Playwrights Lab end of year play extravaganza. Each playwright selected was assigned the theme ‘Now or Never’, and instructed to write a ten-minute play.

MacLean created the short play The Point featuring Angela Sauer, Emily Goss, Luis Kelly-Duarte, and Aaron Lyons. The Point is a dark story about a group of friends at a makeshift party in the Massachusetts woods and deals with class, toxic masculinity, and violence. When Murph and Scanlan join lovebirds Teenie and Lugo at The Point for a debaucherous party, they expect to have a good time. At first they miss the couple’s underlying tensions, but soon realize that the night is about to take a deadly turn.

The event was held virtually due to the pandemic. The evening featured nine playwrights, showcasing the lab members’ writing and the company members’ acting.
