FOR THE PEOPLE Staged Reading at HRC Showcase Theatre
HRC Showcase Theatre launches its 31st season with a staged reading of For the People, by Carol Mullen. For the People is the fictional story of Pittsburgh city councilwoman Meg Cabot, the first openly lesbian elected official in Pennsylvania who, after a vicious hate crime, is suddenly thrust onto the national political stage. With her hard-charging chief of staff steering her towards a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, Meg must decide how far she will go to advance her career and what she is (and isn’t) willing to sacrifice to be both a successful politician and a good person. After the reading there will be a talkback featuring the playwright, director, and cast members. Saturday, May 7th, 7:30 p.m. at The Theater Barn at 654 US-20 in New Lebanon. Suggested donation $20. Tickets at thetheaterbarn.org. Telephone 518-794-8989.
