Nora's Playhouse

The Nora Salon: 2Y20M is June 9th!

Posted by in Announcements, Nora Salon, Upcoming events

The next gathering of our monthly reading series, The Nora Salon, is Friday, June 9th.

We hope you’ll join us for a glass of wine, friendly conversation, and
an informal reading of excerpts from Catherine Castellani’s play: 2Y20M.


In 1991, a crew of eight were sealed into Biosphere 2 to conduct the largest closed-system experiment ever devised or attempted. Two years and twenty minutes later they emerged: skinny, triumphant, controversial, celebrated, and maligned. This is one story of their before, during, and after and what it meant for conducting science on a grand scale.

Molly would do anything for her son, especially since the death of her husband. But trying to keep Quinn on track after he descended into addiction means she’s close to going off the rails herself. Now he’s just out of rehab with the chance to audition for a place at the world’s best drama school. Molly wants to trust him. She wants him well more than anything. But how does a mother move on and make room for new love when she’s consumed with the life of her son?


The cast for this ONE NIGHT ONLY reading will include Jessica Blank (The Exonerated, High Maintenance) as Molly, Stephen Dexter (The Last Days of Judas Iscariot, Billions) as Quinn, Cynthia Enfield (Actress, Red Emma) as Bree, and Quentin Maré (Rock ‘n’ Roll, Coram Boy) as Leo.

The Nora Salon: The Quiet Voice is April 7th!

Posted by in Announcements, Nora Salon, Upcoming events

The April gathering of our monthly reading series, The Nora Salon, is Friday, April 7.

We hope you’ll join us for a glass of wine, friendly conversation, and
an informal reading of Elizabeth Curtis’ one-act play: The Quiet Voice.


Twenty-one year old Vera Brittain’s diary for August 1914 reflects an “incongruous mixture of war and tennis.” With England’s entry into World War I, Vera is propelled from a life of bourgeois leisure into becoming one of the 20th Century’s prominent pacifist and feminist voices. The Quiet Voice,  adapted from Letters from a Lost Generation, a collection of wartime letters written by a young Vera, spans the years 1914 to 1918, taking us through the horrific and life-changing events that war brings.
