Kyle Bullock and Way Way Off-Broadway presented the first Southeastern New Mexico Playwright Festival on Saturday at the Anderson Museum of Contemporary Art. The public and theater fans were treated to five plays that ranged from light-hearted to serious subjects. The winner was Nicholas Featherstone with his play, “The Bonds That Break Us,” a story about a teenager struggling with the addiction of his mother. All plays were performed by volunteer actors of Way Way Off-Broadway. The new playwright authors themselves have been active on the stage of WWOB and the Roswell Community Little Theatre. Bullock thanked all participants and especially Molly Boyles of Once Again Consignment, for support, before entertaining the audience with the first song from his new musical, “A History of Wisdom,” which was performed by Featherstone, Michelle Massey and Tony Souza. The audience mingled with the actors and authors after the winner was announced. Pictured from left are Bullock and his first playwright students, Rose Thorsted, Samantha Thorsted, Jorge O. Ortiz, Spenser Willden and Featherstone. For more information about upcoming plays and classes, visit waywayoffbroadway.com. (Christina Stock Photo)
