Playwright’s Reading Room: “Skin and Bones”

Saturday, February 6th, 2016, at 2:00-3:30 pm

masksThe local theatre group “Playwrights Reading Room” (PRR) will perform a series of three original plays at the library. The first play, “Skin and Bones,” written by Laura Neill, is about a volunteer usher in her sixties named Katharine and a forty-something bouncer named Marly. While the two have seemingly little in common, both are concealing secrets that demand to be told. When their small talk doesn’t line up, and unexpected honesty arises between them.

The next play in the series, on Saturday, April 30th, is “Chat Rats” by Mary Sue Price. The final play, to be performed on Saturday, June 11th, will be announced shortly. To sign up for any or all of these performances – written, directed, and acted by members of PRR – please call 781-769-0200 x110 or 222, email norprograms@minlib.net, or stop by the Reference or Information Desk.
