Woods of Weaver
By Ulrike Rosser
Directed by Audrey Wax
Holly Grace returns home to a discarded prince charming, a family of Southern civil war reenactors, and the open grave of her dead father in this gritty and darkly comic new work of surviving abuse and finding redemption.
Edgewood College Theatre will be hosting the playwright twice! Once in late August/early September to workshop the piece with the cast, and once again when we open to talk with the audience about the work.
Woods of Weaver was written by Ulrike Rosser in 2007 and has undergone many revisions. In what can only be described as a varied life, Ulrike Rosser has been a data entry clerk, a professional tour guide, a public speaking instructor, a clerk at Barnes and Noble, a fitness instructor, and a financial aid director. She has a MFA from the University of Idaho in Dramatic Writing, and a BA in English Literature, with an Acting Minor from the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs. Originally interested in training as an actress, Ulrike discovered that she truly enjoyed blending her love of acting and fiction writing into playwriting, and into crafting theatre as an alchemist would—from bits and pieces, dark liquids and desperate souls. Past productions of her plays include Waning Moon, The Myth of Maria the Virgin, and Crossed Stars. Published short stories include Nineteen Years Old and Everybody Knows the Best Dope Grows in Tijuana. Currently Ulrike resides in Columbus, Ohio, where she is the parent of one teenager and two cats, and is working on her newest play.
