The Reading Parlor presents a reading of Rich Rubin’s new play:
WRITING ON THE WALL
Sunday, 8/13, 6:30 p.m. @ CoHo Productions
The year is 2017. After an outside wall of their high school is defaced with racist taunts and white supremacist slogans, six Wisconsin teenagers grapple with what it means to be an American in the age of Donald Trump. A scary, subversive comedy-drama with (maybe) a happy ending.
Congratulations to Brianna for winning Willamette Week’s “Best Spoken Word/Storyteller” award for the second year in a row.
Artists Repertory Theatre invited LineStorm to be a company-in-residence. We meet there monthly to read pages and will present staged readings and new works throughout the year.
