Brooklyn, NY: Irondale presents Wesley Middletons “Tomato Plant Girl”, a powerful exploration of friendship that delights young audiences with its sharp dialogue, physical action and playful, high-energy conflict. This family friendly presentation of “Tomato Plant Girl”, directed by Amanda Hinkle and performed by the members of the Irondale Ensemble and the Irondale Young Company, is written by Fort Greene resident and national playwright Wesley Middleton and is a magical story about closeness, compromise, and growth that explores the question of what it means to have, and be, a friend.
“Tomato Plant Girl” is the kick-off event to Irondale’s new “Play Project” series. Each month a new play will be presented at Irondale directed by Ensemble members. Plays will be selected at least two months in advance of the proposed reading date. Play submissions are accepted from any playwright. Chosen playwrights will receive an honorarium and are encouraged to engage in the rehearsal and performance process.
