For Valentine's Day, Marietta, Georgia's Theatre in the Square will read Thad Person's farcical comedy, It's Better To Give, centering on the confusion that results from mixups between a local clinic's blood and sperm banks. David de Vries directs.
More than free coffee is percolating at Theatre In The Square with the playreading series, which began Jan. 31 with Marcy D. Kennedy's Tenn. Four evenings of coffee and desserts and plays looking for possible development are held Monday nights through Feb. 21 in the Alley Stage. Admission is free, and all sessions feature talk-backs with the cast, director and playwright.
The final entry in the Percolating Playreading Series is:
Feb. 21: Gary Yates directs The Practical Order of Things from Kim Brundidge (last year's Sex Acts). This play, set in a jury room, looks at prejudice as twelve men and women wrestle with a discrimination suit.
Previous works that have received development from the Percolating Playreading Series include Sherry Camp Paulsen's Our Lady of Perrysburg, Pamela Parker's Tallulah And Hattie: Dead At The Pearly Gates Cafe and Robert Myers' The Lynching of Leo Frank.
