reading series, "Sundays Without Scenery.” The semi- staged readings are presented for two performances each on
Sundays throughout the year. Titles
currently being considered include:
Lindsay-Abaire’s "Good People,” a play set in South Boston that explores the
struggles, shifting loyalties and unshakeable hopes that come with having next
to nothing in America, and his new play "Ripcord,” a high-stakes comedy about
two women of a certain age locked in a no-holds-barred "battle-to-the-death” to
hold onto a single room in the Bristol Place Assisted Living Facility;
Margulies’ "Dinner with Friends,” a turbulent meditation on the minefield of
Ludwig’s play with music "Sullivan and Gilbert,” which takes place at the Savoy
Theatre in 1890. Gilbert and Sullivan, who have been feuding for years, are
forced to work together one more time; Queen Victoria commands a performance of
their most popular songs;
Finkle’s "Indoor/Outdoor,” a comedy about a house cat, Samantha who finds
herself torn between her affection for a human companion, a nebbishy graphic
designer, and her attraction to a sexy tomcat who invites her to sample the
pleasures of the outdoor life.

very excited to be presenting a reading of local playwright Daniel Wentworth’s
"The Match Tin,” a play set in a hospital during the turbulent events of World
