The public is invited to participate in the Blue Hill Public Library Play Reading Group on Wednesday, November 20th from 6:30 to 9:00 PM at the Library, and every 3rd Wednesday of the month until next summer. The play selected for this month is Richard Brinsley Sheridan’s The Critic.
The play is a satire, written in 1779, making fun of play staging and production conventions, and is based on a play by George Villiers, The Rehearsal. In the story, an author, Mr Puff, invites Sir Fretful Plagiary and the theatre critics Mr. Dangle and Mr. Sneer to a rehearsal of his play, The Spanish Armada.
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 Donahue.firstname.lastname@example.org).
