Common Place, Uncommon Encounters

PCPP’s fully mounted play, Common Place, Uncommon  Encounters, had a successful run at the Cape Fear Playhouse in January 2017.

Six members of the Port City Playwrights Project contributed to Common Place, Uncommon Encounters, the group’s first fully staged production, which was performed at the Cape Fear Playhouse in January 2017. Taking place in a rest area off an expressway during the course of one day, the play offered a usually humorous look at the travelers who take advantage of the facilities and the grumpy custodian who frequently must clean up after them.

The playwrights include Susan M. Steadman (who also directed), Brad Field, Don Wood. Alex Neal, Charlotte Hackman and Jeremy Steadman.

Scenes from Common Place, Uncommon Encounters:


“The writers have risen to the challenge and tie together a variety of insights at one space in which, through their differences, they manage to make the show seem whole. That the character of Judson can weave so well into the piece is a tribute to the combined work of not only the writers but also Steadman’s direction and Vest’s work as a performer. The evening is really creative, and the cast rises to the occasion to form distinct characters with relatable attributes, as well as less-than-desirable familiarities.”
