Play by grad student selected for NYC reading
A play by Cristian Panaite has been accepted for the reading series “Dis-Location and Re-Invention,” to be presented in spring 2006 by the Immigrants' Theatre Project (ITP), the New Group and the Martin E. Segal Theater Center in New York. Panaite is a graduate student in theatre and a native of Romania.
Panaite explains that the play, “Trash,” explores migration or immigration of Romanians to the countries of the European Union. “The play focuses on a pair of fathers who take their children to Germany and start making money out of collecting second-hand materials that are shipped and sold to the east,” says Panaite. “As the parents are growing older, the children are taking over the business and ultimately forget about their roots.”
Panaite will go to New York for rehearsals and the reading.
ITP was founded in 1988 by artistic director Marcy Arlin to present traditional and experimental plays by and about immigrants to the United States and worldwide.
