Pay Dirt - Putnam Theatre Alliance Project

Friday, November 4, 2022 at 7:30 pm


Coming soon to Arts on the Lake

With "Pay Dirt" as a working title, playwrights Vickie Ramirez, Kate Moira Ryan and Nan-Lynn Nelson are using the Hudson Valley history of enslaved miller Caesar, heiress Mary Philips (George Washington's first love?) and native American leader Daniel Nimham to tell a story of where land, freedom and love meet.


Performers: Christine Bokhour, Dylan Carusona. Aaron Gaines, Devin Gibbs, JoAnna Rhinehart. Robert G. Siverls, Danielle Soames, James Shearwood and Nancy Sigworth.


3 plays, 3 theatres, 3 nights. Following the premiere reading directed by Alice Jankell at AotL on Friday, the same plays will move to the Philipstown Depot Theatre on Saturday at 7:30 pm and to the Tompkins Corners Cultural Center at 2 pm on Sunday. See them at any or all.

The plan is that these three plays will be woven into a full-length work for presentation in the spring / fall 2023.

Although this reading is essentially "by donation" or "pay-what-you-wish," we need to know how many are attending because seats can fill up. So pick any of these price levels (regardless of title) to secure your seat at Buy Tickets above. Your donation will be appreciated.
