A reading of “Black Comedy,” by Peter Shaffer, will be held in the green room at 51 Walden Street on Saturday, May 7, at 2 pm. All members are welcome, to read or to listen. “Black Comedy” is a possible replacement for “Dolly West’s Kitchen,” which was announced for next season, but is unavailable for production at this time. If any member has a play they would like to bring to a future reading, please contact Rik Pierce at email@example.com . Prepare enough copies of the play to cover the entire cast. You can get them from the library or play suppliers (see links - theatrical publishers).
Speaking of Peter Shaffer, Kirsten Gould will direct “Amadeus” by Peter Shaffer at the Vokes Theatre in Wayland in March 2006.
