Local writer needs audience and actors for new-play reading

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 rose8220@cfl.rr.com. 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!

Thank you.
Carol Rose Offutt
