Cordell selected to participate in Ruhl play reading

Ruth Cordell, speech and theatre teacher and theatre director at The Webb School, will participate in the reading of Sarah Ruhl's "The Clean House" at OZ ARTS Nashville on Jan. 12. Ruhl is the 2019 Nashville Repertory Theatre New Works Fellow.

According to the Nashville Repertory Theatre website, The Martha R. Ingram New Works Project was created by Nashville Rep in Nashville with the support of co-founder Martha R. Ingram to provide an opportunity for theatre artists to develop new theatre works while in residency with Nashville Rep. Currently in its sixth year, the program has evolved to include a New Works Lab for other playwrights who are mentored by the New Works Fellow. Ruhl joins Nashville Rep for a week in January to mentor the lab playwrights. The lab offers these playwrights the opportunity to not only receive feedback but also hear their works read by professional actors during the writing process. A yearly New Works Festival is also a part of the project.
