The Pipeline Playwrights female collective will present a magical comedy


Pipeline Playwrights Announces First Production in Its Our Time Production Series, Our Stories Zoom: Ann Timmons World Premiere A Very Present Presence, directed by Catherine Tripp. This production will be available on video on demand, streaming from June 2 at 7 p.m. to June 16, 2021 at 7 p.m. (ET).

A very present presence is a magical comedy that opens as Alice’s midlife crisis is interrupted by a visit from her long-deceased great-aunt, who takes her on a journey through time. And Alice learns that her problems stem from deeper sources than she imagined. This show has it all: ghosts, time travel, young love, cowardly lobbyists, protesting feminists, and awkward family relationships.

The play will star Diane Cooper-Gould, Ty Corbin, Erin Denman and Jennifer Pagnard. Pipeline will feature live discussions via Zoom with members of the play’s cast and creative team throughout the airing period. Tickets for A very present presence are available in line.
