Library audio-visual/information technology engineer Sean McCord has a play opening tonight, September 7, at 8:00 p.m.at the Belmont Arts Collaborative, 221 Carlton Rd. in Charlottesville. According to an article in UVA Today, McCord’s play “Moving” will be the first production of the Charlottesville Playwrights Collective—a new theater company that the writer started as a forum where aspiring local playwrights can produce and collaborate together on their own work.
“Moving,” follows the lives of residents who move into and out of one apartment over a 30 year period in Silver Lake, a neighborhood of Los Angeles. “I was intrigued by the idea of taking a setting that gave me a platform to explore how the choices we make early in life can impact us and the people around us as we age,” McCord said. “It’s a story about growing, changing and yes, moving.”
The play will be performed on September 7, 8, 9, 15 and 16 at 8:00 p.m. General admission is pay-what-you-will. The collective has two more plays scheduled for spring.
