Event: 'Backstage At The McNay: Bexar Naked Playwrights' Print
Date: Thursday, January 16, 2014 - 6:30 pm
Duration: 2 Hours

The Bexar Naked Playwrights (who may bare their souls, but nothing else), present their annual Playfest at the McNay Art Museum on Thursday, January 16, from 6:30–8:30 pm and on Sunday, January 19, from 2:30–4:30 pm. Six playwrights have written original 10-minute plays inspired by the McNay’s collection and performed in the museum’s galleries. The program includes:

Golda and David, written by Sharon Argo and inspired by Magdalena Abakanowicz’s 1990 sculpture Seated Figure on Iron Frame II

Honeymoons, written by Mike Greenberg and inspired by Raoul Dufy’s 1927 painting Golfe Juan

Two Women Crossing the Fields, written by Rebecca Burroughs and inspired by Vincent Van Gogh’s 1890 painting Women Crossing the Fields

A-Muse-Ing, written by Mary Ellen Rainwater and inspired by the museum itself

Saint for the Victims, written by Lindsey Van DeKirk and inspired by paintings made around 1500 by the Master of Frankfurt, St. Catherine and St. Barbara

Calais, written by Sheila Rinear and inspired by Auguste Rodin's sculpture from the late 1890s, Burghers of Calais

Museum visitors may attend all six or only a selection of the plays, which are repeated at 20-minute intervals throughout the museum. This event, part of the Backstage at the McNay series, is free and open to the public with museum admission. On Thursday night, admission to the museum is free after 4:00 pm and the plays are preceded by a wine reception at 6:00 pm.
