The University of Maine School of Performing Arts Reader’s Theatre will present “The Heart of Art,” a new play by Michael Weller at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 7. The performance will be held in Minsky Recital Hall in Class of 1944 Hall. Admission is free.
The plot of the play surrounds an aspiring playwright from the Midwest whose new play is optioned by a scrupulous, yet desperate producer. A Broadway matinee idol, a bombshell actress, an alcoholic actor, a failed playwright turned dramaturg, and his assistant all make up the cast of this zany comedy, in which art is truth, compromise is king, and innocence is lost. The School of Performing Arts is helping Weller develop this script by providing a new public reading as it heads toward full production. Tom Mikotowicz, a UMaine theatre professor, is directing the play.
