Saugerties’ Round the Bend Theatre presents a one-night-only reading of Erin Proctor’s “Alternative Canon: A Sacrilegious Romp” at 7:30pm on Monday, April 11, at Bridge Street Theatre in Catskill.

Step aside, Abraham (and hang on, Hagar)! God has unveiled a brand-new plan for humanity and chosen a Prophet – a newlywed teenager living in Ancient Mesopotamia. Based incredibly loosely on the Old and New Testaments, as well ancient Jewish Apocalyptic Scripture, “Alternative Canon” is the story of the biblical matriarch Sarah – given a few fabulous modern twists. Featured in the cast are Jessica Lyke, Joseph Bongiorno, David Smilow, Katrina Lantz, Caitlyn Classey, Jeremiah Wenutu, Bill Solley, Alan Britt, Brian Rainey, Chantez Engeleit, and Willis Williams, directed by Beth Ryan Troxell.

Tickets for the reading are available at the door one-half hour before curtain time with a suggested donation of $10. Bridge Street Theatre is located at 44 West Bridge Street in the Village of Catskill. Please note that proof of vaccination is required for entry and that masks must be worn while inside the theatre building.


Erin Proctor (Playwright) is a writer, actor, and dramaturg based in NYC, but she grew up in the Hudson Valley. Her chaotic attitude and queer Jewish identities frequently permeate her work. “Alternative Canon” was named Honorable Mention for the 11th Annual Jewish Plays Project.

She is also an Equity Membership Candidate and a member of the Dramatists Guild. Check out her website: erincproctor.com
