Blue Hill Public Library Play Reading

The public is invited to participate in the Blue Hill Public Library Play Reading Group on Wednesday, April 17th from 6:30 to 9:00 PM at the Library, and every 3rd Wednesday of the month until summer. The play selected for this month is Neil Simon’s Star Spangled Girl, a comedy set in the 1960’s in San Francisco.

The play is about a love triangle between two men– 1960’s radicals– who publish a magazine dedicated to fighting “the system” and a conservative southern woman who moves in next door. The play was reportedly inspired by an argument that Simon witnessed between the liberal writer Paddy Chayefsky and a conservative woman.

The group welcomes inexperienced and experienced readers alike. The only criteria are the love of plays and the joy of reading them aloud among like-minded theater fans. For further information, contact the Blue Hill Library at 374-5515 or Michael Donahue at 374-5248 (or
