Fragmented, Obtuse, Brilliant

Joel Beers theater notes

PLAYS AND PLAYWRIGHTS. One of the main goals for any association of playwrights is to help members get their shows produced elsewhere. That's what's happening with the county's most organized and prolific playwrighting group, The Orange County Playwrights Alliance. Johnna Adams'play of familial strife on the Texas prairie, Cockfighters, first performed by the Hunger Artists last year, is receiving a production at the venerable Jan Hus Playhousein Midtown Manhattan beginning Jan. 24. Closer to home, Alliance member Arthur Kraft will see his play, The Switch, a comedy with a large cast, staged at the Second Stage beginning Jan. 10. The Second Stage, formerly known as The Berubian Theater and located in Santa Ana, now has a new home in Anaheim.
