Smokestack Theater Company - Summerstack Reading for Adults

6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Join us for a FREE community play reading* for adult participants. Read a role, read along, or just watch and listen! Light refreshments and water will be provided or bring your own food. We will be reading Angels in America, Part One: Millennium Approaches, by Tony Kushner. See below for a description. This special summer series is FREE thanks to support from Danville Toyota. This event is part of Collidescope’s PRIDE celebrations! All are welcome! Join us again July 16 for The Odd Couple, by Neil Simon or find our Family friendly Play Readings earlier in the day.
“Winner of the 1993 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Winner of the 1993 Tony Award for Best Play. In the first part of Tony Kushner's epic, set in 1980's New York City, a gay man is abandoned by his lover when he contracts the AIDS virus, and a closeted Mormon lawyer's marriage to his pill-popping wife stalls. Other characters include the infamous McCarthy-ite lawyer Roy Cohn, Ethel Rosenberg, a former drag queen who works as a nurse, and an angel.”
*This is NOT a performance. It is a group reading free for the community to enjoy.
