Life Before Photographs

Emerging Playwright Patrick Link's new show "Sweet Forgotten Flavor" takes audiences back to a time when life was simpler and there weren't cameras to capture every moment or photos to tag on Facebook.
Tonight, Youngblood, Ensemble Studio Theatre’s collective of emerging professional playwrights under 30, presents a free reading of “Sweet Forgotten Flavor” at Pace University’s Schaerberle Studio Theater. 

"Sweet Forgotten Flavor" is a period piece set in 1820s Europe.  The story follows a painter who is commissioned to do a portrait of a dying attorney. It is during one of their portrait sessions that the attorney confesses to once having an affair with a townswoman. He is desperate to contact her but is unable and so offers the painter a huge sum of money to draw a series of portraits of this woman, based on his memory of her. The drawings end up in the wrong hands and humor, excitement and romance ensue.

The cast features Janet Zarish, the head of Graduate Acting at NYU and James Murtaugh known for his  role as Ron on Season 1 of “30 Rock”.

Showtime is 7:00 PM.
