LOS ANGELES -- The Colony Studio Theatre's next Second Stage offering will be Lee Blessing's Eleemosynary. It is the intimate story of three women living up to the expectations of others--as well as each other. They are Dorothea, a free-spirited grandmother; Artie, her conservative daughter; and Artie's daughter Echo, who wins a high school spelling bee championship when she spells the word "eleemosynary" (meaning charitable).
