Each semester we read aloud and discuss four to five 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. There may be some small shared cost for materials, although most of our scripts are already owned by PLATO.

We will read: 

  • Charlie’s Aunt by Brandon Thomas,
  • three old radio shows,
  • Twelve Angry Men by Reginald Rose, and
  • a fourth play to be determined by class members.
