Final Hodge Podge Play Reading

After a successful reading of Women and Guns by Steve Gold in January, and Spake by David L. Williams in February, Hodge Podge concludes March 4, 2012 at 2:00pm at ARTS/West with a reading of The Dissolution of Mr. Stein by Marianne Hales Harding an alumnus of the Ohio University Graduate Playwrighting program; currently of St. George, Utah.

In The Dissolution of Mr. Stein, Vic Stein, a local political candidate and pillar of the community, creates an alter ego online to do some anonymous research on a popular social networking website. Emboldened by his anonymity he ventures further and further into his pretend world, only to find that it is very real with very real consequences.

Each selected play is presented as an informal reading. A reading is defined as actors presenting the words of a script, using scripts-in-hand. With no rehearsals prior to the public reading, each reading will be kept extremely simple so that the playwright's words may be the focus of the event. All readings will be followed by a potluck (bring a dish to share!) and moderated talk back session where audience members are invited to enjoy homemade cuisine and to give their feed-back on the plays.

All events are free and open to the public and begin at 2:00 PM. Donations are encouraged. To receive a copy of the play to be read, please make reservations by calling 740/592.4315 at least 48 hours in advance.

Many thanks to the Humble Play Committee for helping to make this event possible.
