Women's theater picks 'Ironmistress'

So what is it with Women's Theatre Initiative and historical dramas set in England? Ironmistress by April de Angelis makes it three-for-three as WTI announces its annual July production.

"They just seem to appeal to us," says exec producer Kristin Dietsche.

It doesn't hurt, Dietsche adds, that Ironmistress features an all-female cast (of two). Set in 1840, it centers on the relationship between a woman who owns and operates a mill and her childlike adult daughter.

Dates and location will be announced in spring.

In the meantime, WTI will host informal play readings at 7 p.m. every other Tuesday beginning Feb. 3 at Kaldi's on Main. Open to all, e-mail wti@fuse.net for details.
