Davis McCallum directs the reading. The cast includes Justin Adams, Craig Bockhorn, Kate Forbes, Mariann Mayberrry and Jake O’Connor. South of Settling, according to press notes, is described as such: “When her estranged cousin returns to small-town Carthage, Missouri after many years, Kate Deckhouse finds her well-kept world turned upside-down. Compelled to revisit a history she’d rather forget, Kate tries to walk the fine line between the lies we tell others and the lies we tell ourselves.”
