Titled Between Man & Beast, the evening features works penned by playwrights Bill Dudley, Evan Guilford-Blake, V.E. Kimberlin, Judd Lear Silverman and Ed Vela. The ensemble of actors includes James Arden, Kaseem Bristow, Erin Cronican, Eric Hunt, Jonna McElrath and Annie Pesch. Show time is 7:30 PM.
The plays scheduled to be read are A Lovely Moon by Evan Guilford-Blake, in which "a reasonable woman, longing for a change, brings her best friend to meet the new 'creature' in her life"; God Dog by Ed Vela, the story of "a suicidal writer talked off a ledge by a rather verbal, intellectual dog"; Identity Crisis by V.E. Kimberlin, a play in which a "couple question their own sexual identities once their kitten provides an unexpected surprise"; The Bride by Judd Lear Silverman, a tale based on a true story about "a boy from a small tribe in Eastern India who has been married off to a neighbor's dog for his own protection"; and Parrots of the Caribbean by Bill Dudley, a raucous comedy about "a pirate ship, a kidnapped contessa, a pirate captain in a quandary and a young deckhand who gets a most unlikely promotion."
