Please join us for a virtual DG Footlights ® series event, celebrating new dramatic works in progress! This virtual reading will present The Ghosts of Hellbend Corner by Jonathan Kilcullen.

In the play The Ghosts of Hellbend Corner, a cafe in a 1960’s resort town is situated in the apex of a devious auto racing curve known to legend as Hellbend Corner. The base of that curve is anchored by the aging Hotel Dauntless which every racing season brings in a motley retinue of jet-setters, auto mechanics, tortured artists, and hordes of press. The cafe becomes a safe haven from the madness for a jaded journalist, a musician on the run from himself, and a burnt-out racing driver at the peak of her success. (Comedy – PG-13).


DG Footlights™ is a program, created and moderated by the Dramatists Guild, that connects dramatists with free space in which to hold a public reading of a new work that is currently in development. This initiative operates on a space-grant model: a representative from the Guild will arrange for a venue to donate space during allocated dates and times, and will ensure that the space is available for dramatists to use to present a self-produced reading to the public, with an optional feedback session following the reading. Attendance is always free and open to all. We hope to see you there!
