THE GROUP by Michael Brady – They have paid their dues, these writers. Each one hopes to write that perfect play, so they meet, read each other’s work, spilling into each other’s lives and sharing joy, pain, and the hunt for that elusive production. As the saying goes, “No happy playwrights.”
Oct. 17 to 7:00 p.m.
Dog Play by Leigh Strimbeck

All I Had by Ellen Clarkson
“You are what you have.” Is it possible to change a man’s stubborn belief in a premise that is so prevalent yet causes so much pain? That is the subject of All I Had, a story of revelation and redemption, where each disclosure takes the audience by surprise and leads the four characters to insights they never imagined.
