The program coonsisted of readings and performances of eleven theatre pieces created by local Boston playwrights and artists.  The theme was of relationships and all work treats the subject in some way.  The work, all new and not previously presented, included short plays and scenes (including one from a new musical!) plus a movement piece ---  from area artists Rosanna Yamagiwa Alfaro, Ludmila Anselm, Sue Brody, Hortense Gerardo, Lyralen Kaye & Amy West, Lynn Liccardo, Miriam Raikin-Kolb & Geralyn Horton, Monica Raymond, Diane Ripstein, Phyllis Rittner and Debbie Wiess.  Some of the Boston theatre scene's favorite directors and actors will be involved such as Danny Gidron, Ken Baltin, June Lewin, Bobbi Steinbeck and Jerry Bisantz.  After the program, there will be a party with light refreshments for mingling and socializing

This event is part of a new international celebration of women artists called SWAN Day (Support Women Artists Now Day), and is being organized under the auspices of the International Centre for Women Playwrights.  March Madness takes place at the Boston Playwrights' Theatre located at 949 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston, (Pleasant Street stop on B-line) on Saturday afternoon, March 29, from 2-5pm.  There were no ticket sales, but donations were welcome.  All proceeds of the event went to The Fund for Women Artists organization, one of the two groups, which conceived SWAN Day, to support its efforts.  For more information, please contact Debbie Wiess
