Gloucester Stage Artistic Director Eric C. Engel recently announced Gloucester Stage’s 2008 season. Engel’s second season as Artistic Director features the premiere of a new play reading series on Sunday nights in addition to the theater’s five-play Summer Playpass season.

“This year,” explains Engel, “we continue to exercise our commitment to developing new work through our Play Reading series—four plays from four distinctly different writers including our own Israel Horovitz.”

The 2008 Summer Playpass season features the return of actresses Lindsay Crouse and Nancy E. Carroll. Both nationally recognized and accomplished actresses and Cape Ann residents.

“With a season of engaging plays ranging from delightful to chilling to thought provoking, we hope to inspire a summer of entertainment and exploration,” Engel said.
