The Play's the Thing

Each semester we read (aloud) and discuss 3 or 4 plays using an integrated approach which allows everyone to participate. A brief background of each play and playwright is presented by a volunteer from the group. Since we must purchase the scripts, there is a small cost (as yet undetermined) for materials. This semester we’ll read Arcadia by Tom Stoppard, Fences by August Wilson, Rocket to the Moon by Clifford Odets, and You Never Can Tell by George Bernard Shaw.
