Under Construction: Derelict in Fairville

October 2 @ 7:30 PM
Written By Steve Apostolina
Directed By Jennifer Chambers

When a horrific event thrusts Fairville, Ohio into the National media, the entire town is devastated. A chain reaction of judgment, hate, sadness and disillusionment tragically follows. In Fairville, you don’t have to be wrong to face consequences.

Although his base is now the west coast, Steve has lived in 14 states and 3 countries – as far south as Corpus Christi, Texas and as far north as Baie Comeau, Quebec, Canada.

As a playwright, Steve is most interested in exploring people’s boundaries. His plays are meant to challenge, provoke, surprise and of course – entertain.

Partial list of plays: Forever Bound – starring French Stewart (Ovation Award nomination for playwriting), Flight of the Penguin (Drama-Logue Award playwriting ) The American Way (Valley Theatre Award playwriting) Broken (Antaeus Festival with Laura San Giacomo), T.N.T. and Cold in Hand (2 time finalist at The Neil Labute Playwright Festival, most recently 2020), The Lesson (Actor’s Theatre of Louisville Semi-Finalist), Elevator Repair at The Open Fist, Embroiled – NJ Rep and many others. His play Forever Bound was read at Williamstown Theatre Festival with Amanda Seyfriend, Tommy Sadoski and Peter Friedman. Several of his pieces saw development through The Road Theatre’s Summer Festival and his latest full length play, Fairville, was developed through their Under Construction Workshop during Covid 2020.

Member: The Dramatists Guild, Antaeus Playwright’s Lab (Playwright’s Panel) and The Road Theatre’s Under Construction.
