Readers Theatre to feature 4 short stories

Miners Foundry presents it’s spring production of Readers Theatre on Sunday at Miners Foundry Cultural Center in Nevada City.

Directed by Tim O’Connor, the four short stories that will be read are “A Woman’s Restaurant” by T.C. Boyle, “The Loudest Voice” by Grace Paley, “The Cat that Flew to Trinity” by Robertson Davies and “First Confession” by Frank O’Connor.

A quick rundown of the authors shows that Paley is the first recipient of the Edith Whatron Citation of Merit. W.B. Yeats says about O’Connor: “An artist who did for Ireland what Chekov did for Russia. He has produced an impressive amount of work but it is his short stories that guarantee his immortality.” John Kenneth Galbraith said of Robertson Davies, “He is one of the most learned, amusing, and otherwise accomplished novelists of our time and of our century.”

Witty, satiric and fun, this Readers Theatre will be held on March 25, 2 p.m. Tickets for $12 may be purchased at the door. Contact the Foundry at 265-5040 or go online at http://www.miners for more information.

And for those who have never been to such a performance, says: From the audience’s standpoint, the Readers Theatre experience is one of involvement. The audience participates with its imagination to provide the sets, costumes and props. Skilled voice actors, when well rehearsed, cause an audience to experience literature as they, the actors, experience it.
