It's the next offering in Weller Book Works ongoing free play reading series! We hold a free play reading the third Monday of every month, and each month is sponsored by a different local theatre company. September's sponsor is Pygmalion Productions. There will be a reception at 7:30, followed by the reading at 8. Joan and Harry are a logical, organized, somewhat controlling married couple who try to keep things fresh while staying responsible. Constantly a worrying presence to them is Joan's brother Beane, a social outcast who lives by himself in a small apartment. Things begin to change when Beane meets the love of his life, Molly, a burglar who has broken into his home intending to rob him. Beane's life suddenly becomes filled with color, taste, and sound. As his relationship with Molly progresses, Joan and Harry's worries increase. At the heart of the matter are the questions "Who is Molly? And why is she here?". Filled with existential questions and plot twists, this edgy play is sweet and sharp, and may change the way you look at relationships. Directed by Barb Gandy. Starring Lane Richins, Melanie Olmstead, Jeremy Chase, and Nova Chase.

In this thrilling conclusion to the Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy, Karou is still not ready to forgive Akiva for killing the only family she's ever known.

When a brutal angel army trespasses into the human world, Karou and Akiva must ally their enemy armies against the threat--and against larger dangers that loom on the horizon. They begin to hope that it might forge a way forward for their people. And, perhaps, for themselves--maybe even toward love. From the streets of Rome to the caves of the Kirin and beyond, humans, chimaera, and seraphim will fight, strive, love, and die in an epic theater that transcends good and evil, right and wrong, friend and enemy.

In Caitlin’s world, everything is black or white. Things are good or bad. Anything in between is confusing. That’s the stuff Caitlin’s older brother, Devon, has always explained. But now Devon’s dead, and her father cries a lot. Caitlin wants to get over it, but as an eleven-year-old girl with Asperger’s, she doesn’t know how. When she reads the definition of “closure” in the dictionary, she realizes that is what she and her father need. In her search for Closure, Caitlin discovers that not everything is black and white--the world is full of colors--messy and beautiful, and it is through this discovery that she embarks on a road which leads her to find both healing and closure.

Aristotle is an angry teen with a brother in prison. Dante is a know-it-all who has an unusual way of looking at the world. When the two meet at the swimming pool, they seem to have nothing in common. But as the loners start spending time together, they discover that they share a special friendship—the kind that changes lives and lasts a lifetime. And it is through this friendship that Ari and Dante will learn the most important truths about themselves and the kind of people they want to be. POSTS
