The Croswell Opera House will present staged readings of three comic plays on Friday, April 1.
The readings will take place in the Croswell gallery starting at 7:30 p.m. as part of Adrian First Fridays.
All three plays are from “All in the Timing,” a cycle by American playwright David Ives. With plots ranging from an awkward first date to a man trying to break out of an unlucky day, the plays — titled “Sure Thing,” “The Philadelphia” and “Variations on the Death of Trotsky” — will run about 40 minutes altogether.
The production is directed by Emily Gifford and features Julianne Dolan, Cindy Farnham, Terry Hissong, John Hopkins, Tim Ray and Dale White.
The event is a reading rather than a fully staged production, allowing the audience to experience theater in a different way than they may be used to.
“This is the third play reading we’ve done this season, and it’s always a great experience,” said Croswell artistic director Jere Righter. “You get to really focus on the words, on the language, and being in a smaller space makes it a very fun, very intimate experience.”
Tickets are not required, but a donation of $2 per person is suggested.
