Humble Play day 4

Humble Play Thursday, October 7 @ 7:00 pm we have a reading of the new play Born Lucky by Chris Pomeroy produced by the Brick Monkey Theater Ensemble. Mr. Pomeroy will be joining us for the reading.

Here is what Chris says about his play:
"This is a play about the economic crisis in America, and how that crisis is making it harder for people to get ahead. It started when I met someone in my Illinois hometown much like Carla (one of the principal characters in the play). I would be eager to discover with ARTS/West's audiences whether the truth I am trying to find in the play is ringing true."

Chris Pomeroy is an actor and writer, based in Chicago. His plays include Courting the Wild Man, My Affair with Lady Macbeth, and Born Lucky. Favorite recent projects include playing Wotan in a six-hour adaptation of Richard Wagner’s The Ring Cycle (The Building Stage), and a short film called Faster, which will premiere at the Chicago International Film Festival in October 2010. He can be seen onstage until Oct. 30 in a new play called The Franklin Expedition at The Building Stage in Chicago. Much love to Melissa.
