What could be more pleasurable on a cold winter night than seeing some of Halifax’s finest actors reading plays by some of Nova Scotia’s most talented playwrights? If you can’t think of an answer, you might want to take in the Cold Readings Series at Plutonium Playhouse.
Last week’s offering was a reading of His Greatness, a “potentially true story” of Tennessee Williams’ visit to Vancouver for the opening of a play that was later savaged by critics. (Don’t you just hate critics!). Artfully directed by Katherine MacLellan, the reading was brought to life after only two days rehearsal by the terrific Richard Donat, John Beale and Stewart Legere.
Next up is: A Reading of WITH BATED BREATH by Bryden MacDonald, Thursday January 27, 8PM. Featuring Hugh Thomson, Mary-Colin Chisolm, Stacy Smith, Keelin Jack and Ryan Doucette. $10 or $8 students, seniors For advance tickets phone 423-4653
