The new play Holy Laughter follows an Episcopal priest who finds that the reality of leading a church is radically and hilariously different than what she learned in seminary. As she wrestles with church finances, eccentric parishioners, changing sexual mores and her own doubting human heart, Abigail struggles to make peace with the realities of contemporary church life.
WAM did a reading of Catherine Trieschmann’s play How the World Began as part of the inaugural 2014 Fresh Takes series, and it was very well received. Earlier this year, WAM Artistic Director Kristen van Ginhoven saw the first staged reading of her new play Holy Laughter at the Denver Center New Play Summit, where it had been commissioned.
Catherine Trieschmann’s plays include The Bridegroom of Blowing Rock, Crooked, How the World Began, Hot Georgia Sunday, and The Most Deserving. We welcome her to The Roundtable this morning along with Kristen van Ginhoven, Artistic Director of WAM Theatre.
