‘Italian’ slated for playwrights confab

Neena Beber's play replaces 'Mistakes'

Neena Beber’s “Italian Sojourn” will replace Craig Wright’s play “Mistakes Were Made” in one of the developmental slots at the 2008 National Playwrights Conference at the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center in Waterford, Conn.

“Mistakes” had to be yanked at the last minute due to scheduling conflicts with the Wright-created ABC skein “Dirty Sexy Money,” according to Wendy C. Goldberg, the conference a.d. who had been skedded to helm “Mistakes.”

Goldberg will instead direct Beber’s “Sojourn,” about an American exchange student on the run in Italy after the murder of her roommate. Show will see public readings July 18 and July 20 at the O’Neill.

A high-profile legit development arena, the annual summer playwrights conference has helped launch recent plays including Adam Bock’s “The Receptionist” and Robert Aguirre-Sacasa’s “Good Boys and True,” both of which went on to Off Broadway productions last season. Tony-winning tuner “In the Heights” is an alum of the O’Neill’s musical theater conference.
