The Michael Warren Powell Memorial Reading is presented by the 29th Street Playwrights Collective to support the work of a playwright outside the collective to commemorate the work of the late Michael Warren Powell, now and in perpetuity, whose work as the beacon of light at the Circle Rep Lab was an inspiration and a model for Emma Goldman-Sherman and so many others working in the theatre today.

SURVIVORS by James Masten
Jeff Gold is about to marry the man of his dreams (if he doesn’t screw it up at the very last moment) when an old friend shows up in crisis. Can Jeff integrate a past of loss and regret in order to embrace a life he never anticipated?
SURVIVORS continued development with the Write Now Workshop and was subsequently presented at the Bernie Wohl Theatre as part of the New Works Series, 2017.
