The play is Black-Eyed Peas and has four characters: one adult male; one adult female; one teen-aged boy; and one teen-aged girl. It takes place in the South during Reconstruction. A widow and her two children struggle to survive while a Yankee carpetbagger takes whatever he can.
It takes about 15 to 20 minutes.
Play Readers of Denton will meet Tuesday, Jan. 24, at 7 pm at the Campus Theatre to read a play out loud. Last week, we read The Shadow Box in anticipation of upcoming auditions for the Black Box production.
Congratulations to Play Readers Jim Laney, Bryan Patrick, Wes Porter, and Gary Fulton, who have all been cast in DCT's MainStage production of Oliver!, directed by Play Reader Pat Watson and produced by Play Reader Brad Speck!
