Jennifer will be reprising her role as Roman / Sydney in the staged reading of Kevin Armento‘s Questhaven at Playwright’s Horizons on Tuesday April 24th at 7:00pm.
Part of The Work Farm Reading Series, Questhaven is a full-scale excavation of, and homage to, the horror movie genre. When a group of theatermakers try to make a play based on an old horror screenplay the playwright found at a writers retreat, things begin happening in the rehearsal room. Inexplicable things. As their first performance nears, they’ll have to dig up a past that doesn’t want to be dug up…before they’re all dead.
