Veronica Meadows, by Stephen Thorne

201 Washington St, Providence, RI   (view map)

Trinity Rep is staging another world premiere — by Stephen Thorne, who has been a member of the resident acting company for 14 years. Veronica Meadows is the “girl detective” who has been solving crimes in her small town with her friend Ginny. But something changes for Veronica when she hits 16. Thorne says, “This whip-smart woman has gotten stuck playing the ‘girl detective’ role and once she realizes that perhaps there is more to life than her tried-and-true routine, she steps outside of the role she has been asked to play. As she evolves and grows, her actions completely rewrite her world and everyone around her.” The play has been in the works for two years, evolving and growing through readings and workshops. “As a writer, you work alone for months and in your minds, the play is done,” Thorne explains. “Then you hear it read out loud and suddenly the room is alive with questions and new ideas. The greatest thing about our collaboration is the vigorous curiosity the acting company brings to the table, literally opening up the play and letting it blossom and grow beyond anything I was originally thinking of as a writer.” Veronica Meadows is in the Dowling Theater at 201 Washington St, Providence, through May 4 | $28-$68 | 401.351.4242 |
