Here’s a request from local playwright Carol Rose Offutt:
I would like to invite theater enthusiasts to participate in a reading of my play, Distant Runway Lights, a military romance set in the 1940s.
Along with participants, I would like audience members to give a critique of the play and participate in a discussion of the play at the conclusion of the reading.
If you are interested in participating and/or attending, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please mention Play Reading in the subject line. Additionally, please let me know what evening of the week would best suit your schedule.
We will be sure to have a fun evening!
