When creative couple Milton and Adam did their first play reading in Williamstown a year ago, Rainbow Seniors has just began, and most of us did not know what to expect. That Thing by John Shanahan was their choice, and we loved it because it was about a couple who had been together long enough that they had begun to lose “the fire.”
Because we had such fun, we asked them for an encore.
They agreed. So for our Pittsfield meeting on October 1, 2016 we will enjoy several more fun short plays, and Milton is hoping some of us will volunteer to read some of the key parts with them. One story in particular depends on a little advance preparation, so if you are game, give Milt a call at 413-445-5878. Or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org And it is ok if you are more Florence Foster Jenkins than Meryl Streep.
The very short plays they are considering all have fascinating titles: A Walk in the Park, So Tell Me about This Guy, Farewell and Adieu, The Rental, A Sunny Morning. In true theatrical tradition, all the stories have unexpected twists and payoffs.
There will only be one reading, and that takes place only on Saturday, October 1 from 2-4pm at the second floor conference room of the Berkshire Atheneum in Pittsfield, MA. For more information on Rainbow Seniors, contact Ed Sedarbaum at 413-441-6006.
