Staged Reading: OCTOBER, BEFORE I WAS BORN

by Lori Matthews

Monday, September 19, 2011- 7:30 p.m.

Directed by C. Michael Wright
Featuring Michael Cotey, Raeleen McMillion, April Paul & Ken Williams

An hour after the 1960 explosion at Tennessee Eastman Company, three family members await word on the fate of their loved ones employed there. Martha, Anne and Houston are stranded at the family's rural farm house with only limited access to information about the unfolding disaster. The tension of the day and their misguided efforts to cope with the situation create a different kind of explosion-this one caused by the combustion of tempers, frustrations and fears.

The reading will be in The Skylight Bar & Bistro, 2nd Floor, Broadway Theatre Center, 158 N. Broadway. Open for dinner starting at 5:30 p.m. Call Kafevino at 414-224-4900 to make a reservation.

The reading is free with donations kindly accepted. Seating is first-come, first-served. Patrons are encouraged to arrive early.
