Readings continue

Two works will have staged readings this week in the fourth annual New Voices of the Wild West new play development program presented by Foothill Theatre Company.

“Asylum” by Mark Rigney at 7 tonight and 8 p.m. Saturday is about a young woman who stakes out a tiny island of land on the Rio Grande and starts her own country. Foreign policy headaches follow; neighboring “countries” are unhappy.

“Hammers” by Elvet Conrad at 8 p.m. Friday and 2 p.m. Sunday is about the ordeals of construction foreman Chuck Ratowitz at the Weatherlee mansion, where he endures heiress Sophia Weatherlee’s nonstop demands.

Readings are at City Centre Playhouse, 127 Bank St., Grass Valley.

Admission is $7 per play. Call the Foothill Theatre Company box office at 265-8587 for reservations.
