The Friends of the Library have invited the Peter H. Luce Play Readers to perform a reading of 4 short comic plays from the collection "All in the Timing" by David Ives, directed by Leslie J. Stark, on Sunday, November 13 at 2pm. The reading is free and refreshments will be served.
SURE THING is a classic of contemporary comedy: Two people meet in a cafe and find their way through a conversational minefield as an offstage bell interrupts their false starts, gaffes, and faux pas onthe way to falling in love. THE PHILADELPHIA presents a young man in a restaurant who has fallen into "a Philadelphia," a Twilight Zone-like state in which he cannot get anything he asks for. His only way out of the dilemma? To ask forthe opposite of what he wants. VARIATIONS ON THE DEATH OF TROTSKY shows us the Russian revolutionary on the day of his demise, desperately trying to cope with the mountain-climber's axe he's discovered in his head. MERE MORTALS eavesdrops on a lunch hour on a girder 50 stories over the street, as three construction workers share increasingly amazing secrets of their past.
Beginning Sunday, November 6th at 2pm, the library will offer a monthly crafts program for "grownups". This month we will be making GOURD CANDLES, great for your Thanksgiving centerpiece or as a hostess gift. Bring your melon ballers and old candle stubs. Everyone 12 and older is welcome to participate. Contact Jennifer at the library for more information.
