The Contemporary American Theater Festival (CATF) is presenting a first reading of a new play by Jeffrey Lieber. The playwright had the opportunity to explore Shepherdstown last summer when he was in town for the rehearsals of his play Fever Dreams at the Shepherdstown Opera House. The community Lieber encountered reminded him of Thornton Wilder’s Our Town. Discussions with CATF Artistic Director Peggy McKowen led to the idea to adapt the classic play into a modern script. The first draft performance will be on Friday, Dec 8, 6:30 pm at the new CATF facility (the former Christ Reformed Church building at 304 East German St, Shepherdstown).
