Theatrical Scenes from Danville, PA

In Theatrical Scenes from Danville, PA, playwright David A. Miller will create five original 10-minute plays inspired by the history (recent and distant) and people of Danville, PA. The creative process will include research in collaboration with the Montour County Historical Society, interviews with residents of Danville hosted at local businesses, playwriting workshops with young people at St. Joseph’s School, a playwright’s writing retreat, and a public performance of staged readings of the original pieces by professional and student actors in downtown Danville in August 2020.
