BLUE HILL, Maine — The public is invited to participate in the Blue Hill Public Library Play Reading Group from 6:30 to 9 p.m. on Wednesday, May 15, at the Library, and every third Wednesday of the month until summer. The play selected for this month is Clifford Odets’s Country Girl (1950).
The play is a drama about a devoted wife, whose husband is an actor, struggling with illness, lack of confidence and alcoholism. When he gets a big break and is offered a major role she works hard to support him and boost his confidence, only to have him break down on opening night—the stress too much for him.
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).
