The Orange County Playwrights Alliance travels to Newport Theatre Arts Center – Newport Beach’s beautiful “theatre on the cliff” – for its July new play event, presenting staged readings of three new one-act plays that all concern the possibility of a “second chance.”

Getting Another Chance

Written & directed by John Franceschini
Featuring Paul Burt, Lily Edwards and Ronni Lasky
Down on his luck, a former British music hall star befriends a troubled unwed mother in the park.

Faulty Memoiry

Written by Eric Eberwein | Directed by Nakisa Aschtiani
Featuring Amy Lipsey and Regina Niles
It’s time for Patricia to atone for the “memoir” that made her a literary sensation.

Riding the Storm

Written & directed by Pattric Walker
Featuring Lauren Mitchell, Lisa Renee, Eric Schiffer and Barb Turino
Three wives of pilots on a dangerous mission express secrets and fears, and together learn to be what it means to be a woman, whether vulnerable or strong.
OCPA began in 1995 when students in South Coast Repertory’s Advanced Playwriting Workshop conceived the idea to create a self-sustaining playwrights’ organization. OC theatre has changed since then, and we are proud to be a part of that change.
Since 1979, the Newport Theatre Arts Center (NTAC) has been providing affordable, high-quality plays in the finest community theater in Orange County. Each NTAC season (September through July) consists of five shows from different genres. In addition, NTAC engages youth in community theater through a summer production and celebrates the holidays with a December holiday show.
