She’ll be in attendance at a Barnard College reading co-sponsored by theduwk qvwlwxwh, and one at qvhpeohwxglr khdwuh in May. She won’t be able to see all the readings, but that’s theatrical business as usual. As she puts it, “Any theatre that you make exists outside of you and travels on its own terms.” That’s a kind of spill we can fully endorse. Visit thewayofwater.

Harbor Stage Company was born. Details of its inaugural three-month season are still forthcoming. In the meantime, the troupe will offer a presentation at April’s “Wellfleet Blossoms” festival to introduce itself to the community. WHAT’s executive director dunrxjkis philosophical. “We always understood we wouldn’t be at the Harbor Stage for-

The building’s owner, reñ huwÝhuulv, had leased it to WHAT for $24,000 per May-to-October season, but in January declined to renew, opting instead to rent to a troupe of former WHAT actors called the dueruwdjhrpsdq|, under the leadership of rehuw ursi. uhqgdlwkhuv— who worked since 2008 at WHAT with HSC co-founders pdqgdroñ olqv, rqdwkdqlhoglqj, wdf|lvfkhu and hzlv khhohu—says the move was years in the making. “While we worked there, we got a real sense of the company that started that space with an artist-run ideal.
