May 18 - We Will Not Be Silent
David Meyers tells the true story of Sophie Scholl, a German college student who led the only major act of civil disobedience during the Second World War. The play is not about the Holocaust, but examines the role ordinary Germans played in the rise of Hitler, and also the moral strength and clarity that led a group of German students to give their lives for a righteous, but hopeless, cause. The reading will feature Gary Glor, Julian Gordon and Stephanie Windland and will be directed by Laura Ekstrand, Dreamcatcher’s Artistic Director.
May 25 - String Around My Finger
Brenda Withers' quiet comedy about a young couple in the aftermath of a miscarriage. While Emma is still in the hospital, she and Kip try, with the help or interference of his sister, a physician’s assistant and an insightful older patient, to piece together what their relationship has been and what it still might become. Performing in the reading, directed by Laura Ekstrand, will be Noreen Farley, Gary-Kayi Fletcher, Jessica O’Hara Baker, Janet Sales and Jason Szamreta.
The Oakes Center is located at 120 Morris Avenue in Summit. The parking lot is accessible from Ashwood Avenue, behind the theatre.
