Berkshire Playwrights Lab to Offer Guidance Reading July 15

News   Berkshire Playwrights Lab to Offer Guidance Reading July 15 The Berkshire Playwrights Lab will present a staged reading of Wasserstein Prize-nominated playwright Daria Polatin's Guidance July 15.

Bob Jaffe will direct the free 8 PM reading at the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center. Casting is currently underway. Guidance, according to press notes, "concerns a new high school guidance counselor. When he gets caught up in the lives of his students, involved with a frazzled parent, and placed on an 'educational' committee that's banning books, not even his Advil addiction can save him."

Polatin is also the playwright of Eggs in a Basket, Here or Now and Skye Blue. Her works for the screen include "The Ideal Home," "Spah" and "Happen to Know."

Reservations can be made by phoning (413) 528-0100. For further information, visit BerkshirePlaywrightsLab.

The Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center is located at 14 Castle Street in Great Barrington, MA.
