Out to Dry Margie Langston studied playwriting at the University of Virginia, but took some years off to raise two children and work in a variety of careers before being drawn back into the dramatic life. She has been a member of several playwrights groups, most recently the Richmond Playwrights Forum.In April of this year, the one-act play you are seeing tonight had a staged reading at the Firehouse Theatre in Richmond for their monthly “Hot Lunch at the Firehouse” series of staged readings for new plays. In 2004, her one-act play, “Painting the Truth” won first place in Richmond’s Barksdale Theatre Footlights Series for new playwrights.Margie also enjoys radio theatre, and wrote an hour-long mystery drama that was selected to be produced by San Francisco-based “Shoestring Radio Theatre” and broadcast in September 2006 on public radio stations in 34 states as well as on the internet. Margie also contributes scripts to the Richmond-based “On the Air Radio Players,” of which she is a member. When not acting or writing, she works as a manager of condos and townhouses, which provides an unending source of characters and stories for inspiration, as well as a paycheck. She is excited to be in Louisiana because it gives her a chance to visit her daughter who makes her home in New Orleans.
