We are so excited to invite you to our inaugural play reading event. We will be discussing Pearl Cleage’s Flyin’ West on Monday, January 23 at 2pm on Zoom. Click here to register. (Registrations will close January 20.)
All you need to do is get a copy of Flyin’ West and read it before January 23. You can purchase a copy of the play here, here or here. You may even be able to borrow a copy from your library.
There is no cost for this (aside from the price of the play), though donations to the theatre are always welcome if you would like to make a gift to support and encourage these types of activities. We hope you will join us for this exciting new series that will bring us together in a virtual way until we can see one another in person in June.
We hope to see you on our screens on the 23rd!
Mark your calendars for the rest of our events:

Monday, 3/6 Indecent by Paula Vogel
You may also be able to get copies at local libraries.
“Pearl Cleage is a passionate, challenging playwright whose concerns for the species are unmistakable and profound. As a woman, as an African-American, her artistic objectivity and sensitivity to history combine with, but do not overshadow, her capacity to dig for truth and present it flat out as she sees it – with a finger snap or a shout and sometimes with a wink. Among the most satisfying roles I’ve undertaken on stage is surely Miss Leah in Flyin’ West. She brings the bushel nuggets of drama and humor that capture the ear, the heart and the imagination. She’s devilish, too.”
