A North Shore Readers Theatre Staged Reading

Lydia and Woody are an aging Maine couple living quietly in a rented old house on the coast of Maine. Lydia’s a retired psychotherapist and cancer survivor with an interest in paganism and homeopathy. Woody’s a semi-retired tax preparer and recovering alcoholic who, ten years earlier, lost the couple’s home and savings on a high-stakes investment. Woody reads books and keeps the woodstove firing.

Unbeknownst to them, the homeowner, a dear friend confined to a nursing home, has quietly passed away. Enter her estranged daughter Daisy with husband Jimmy, a high stakes gambler who’s just lost everything, including their Massachusetts condo. Daisy and Jimmy are the home’s new owners who have arrived to move in—and Jimmy has a dark secret that’s about to track him down.

“Daisy on the Mourning Moon” is a new play from Mainer Michael Kimball. The North Shore Readers Theatre is a play development program run by The Actors Studio of Newburyport that presents staged readings of new plays to an audience who then offer playwrights feedback on their scripts.

Michael Kimball received the John Gassner Award (New England Theatre Conference) for his play “Duck and Cover.” His play “Ghosts of Ocean House” was one of three finalists for the Edgar Award (Mystery Writers of America), and his novel “Undone” was a London Times top-ten bestseller. He lives quietly on the Maine coast with his retired wife, Glenna.
