36 and counting! If you haven’t received the new play from Michael McKeever, 37 Postcards, which opened the annual Sarasota Festival of New Plays, your last chance will be Saturday June 3. 37 Postcards began performances in the Studio April 20. Written like a 1930s Hollywood screwball comedy, Postcards brings young Avery Sutton and his finance back from an eight year stint in Europe only to find his already eccentric family has gone certifiably insane. McKeever's other works include The Garden of Hannah List, That Sound You Hear, The Velveteen Undertow, and Don't Tell the Tsar.
Tickets are $26-$18 for 37 Postcards, $25 for the staged readings and Speakers Series with subscription rates available. Florida Studio Theatre is located at 1241 North Palm Avenue. For reservations, call the box office at (941) 366-9000. Florida Studio Theatre is on the web at http://www.fst2000.org.
