Hope McSherry ’21 performs at Maine Playwright’s Festival

Hope McSherry ’21 was selected to perform in a staged reading of a new play, Callie Kimball’s Dreams of The Penny Gods, at the Maine Playwright’s Festival last week. The reading was directed by Daniel Burson.

Hope gave a sensitive, funny, and moving reading in the leading role of “Bug,” a teenage girl growing up in severe poverty in Biddeford, Maine. Her cast mates were all  professional actors from the Portland area.

Hope is pictured here with the playwright Callie Kimball, a well-established local playwright whose work is produced around the country.
