THE MAN WHO STOPPED LOVING WOMEN by Pittsburgh playwright Michael McGovern will be presented April 8 at 7:30 pm by The Silver Theater Project at The Glitter Box Theater, 460 Melwood Avenue as part of its Spring 2018 Salon Play Reading Series.
The Silver Theater Project was founded in May 2017 by Michael McGovern as a way to provide a creative outlet for playwrights and performers age 40 and above in the Pittsburgh area. This past Fall it produced three popular Salons, which, in addition to the readings, also featured desserts and drinks in the comfortable lounge at The Glitter Box.
“Script, actors, intimacy is what we go for,” explains McGovern. “Our audience enjoys the small theater space and the chance to meet the actors and writers before and after the performances. And yes, audience members always stay and chat with us after the show.”
THE MAN WHO STOPPED LOVING WOMEN was originally performed as part of the inaugural Pittsburgh Fringe Festival in 2015. It’s a drama with comedic overtones about a writer who shuts off his emotions and the effect it has on the women in his life. During the course of an evening its four characters grapple with love, sex, and alcohol. McGovern describes the play as “Neil Simon meets Edward Albee.”
The cast features Brian Czarniecki, Lucia Metrailler, Christopher St. Pierre, and Samantha A. Camp.
The second Spring Salon presentation, THE SHORT ORDER PLAY FEST, featuring plays and monologues by Pittsburgh area writers will take place June 9 & 10.
The Sliver Theater Project is a project of New Sun Rising. THE MAN WHO STOPPED LOVING WOMEN will be performed April 8 at 7:30 PM at the Glitter Box Theater, 460 Melwood Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15213. More information can be found here.
