CLA+THEA: A Collaboration Between the Center for Literary Arts and FSU's Theatre Department

FSU’s Center for Literary Arts and Department of Theatre and Dance Present Workshop and Performance of Jeff Keilholtz’s New Play “Bad Fiction”

The Center for Literary Arts at Frostburg State University and FSU’s Department of Theatre and Dance will present Jeff Keilholtz in a workshop and performance of his new play “Bad Fiction” on Friday, Feb. 10, at the Lyric Theatre, 20 E. Main St. in Frostburg. The workshop/rehearsal will take place from noon to 5 p.m. and will be followed by a performance at 7:30 p.m.

The crime drama “Bad Fiction” opens on Nola Spencer, whose face is swollen and bloody. Nola brings all three other characters into her world. She is panicked and injured at the outset – saying she was beaten. As the play unfolds, we find out why her face looks the way it does. The plot involves four people who would never really be in a room together, having to deal with each other when the stakes could not be higher.

Keilholtz is a writer based out of New York City. His first full-length play, “Nightswimming,” was produced at Access Theatre by At Hand Theater Company and subsequently workshopped with Millennium Talent Group at Manhattan Ensemble Theatre. It was optioned as a screenplay by L.I.F.T. Productions and later by Louisiana Film Consultants (“The Mist). His new book, “A Boy From Brooklyn: Clinton Simpson and the Orphan Train,” is available at Keilholtz has degrees in sociology and psychology and has worked as a political professional.
