The Last Best Small Town a Staged Reading at T. Schreiber Studio

THE FINAL IN A SERIES OF FOUR STAGED READINGS:

The Last, Best Small Town by John Guerra

directed by Gregg Pica

Sunday, May 5th, 2019 @ 3pm & 7pm – FREE ADMISSION

The Last, Best Small Town tells the story of two neighboring families –one Latinx and one white– who live in the small southern California town of Fillmore. As the first decade of the 21st century unfolds, the children of these families come of age, fall in love, and suffer loss, as they continually hunt for their place in a world that can no longer promise them a better life than their parents.

THE THIRD IN A SERIES OF FOUR STAGED READINGS:

Men Overboard by RICH ORLOFF

Sunday, March 3rd, 2019 @ 3pm & 7pm

Seating is limited, so please reserve in advance. Walk-ins may be accepted as space allows.

In MEN OVERBOARD, a Bar Mitzvah in New York City brings together three Jewish brothers who have taken different life paths (becoming a politician, a therapist, and a Buddhist monk), plus their fading but forceful father, the politician’s 13-year-old son (who doubts he’s ready to become a man), and the boy’s Bar Mitzvah tutor (a woman who loves the boy and possibly one of his uncles). As the boy is torn between obedience and defiance of his father, tensions grow, affecting everyone in the family, until anger becomes abuse and it becomes clear that the family’s status quo is no longer an option. MEN OVERBOARD asks “What makes a man?” as it explores the responsibility each of us has to protect the souls of those we love..
