A young actor approaches a director to help him brush up on his Shakespeare which becomes a battle of wills, egos, misunderstandings and eventual camaraderie. A tersely and extremely well written two-hander which will keep you on the edge of your seat like a Wimbeldon tennis match between two artists trying to close an age and cultural chasm in the name of Art.

Revelations both comic and dramatic abound on the golf course when four college buddies, now middle-aged, meet after 25 years sharing old and new secrets. Deftly written by one of Canada's most prestigious playwrights whose work PCA audiences have enjoyed immensely in the past. Don't miss this final Readers Theatre of the season!
Talented Readers Theatre cast members deliver the dialogue using vocal intonation, facial expression and limited physical movement, with scripts in hand. On a professional level, many playwrights and/or composers and lyricists of musicals hold similar readings of their work for potential financial backers. Directors look upon this form of theatre as a way to broaden their ability to reach out and “test the waters” in different styles of theatre and/or bring stories which, for various reasons, may not be suitable or logistically possilble to produce on stage.

Author Rich Orloff (“Rich” in the play) travels the country in search of trying to better understand and define who and what the Tea Party is and stands for. Politically charged, funny, dramatic and very likelyl to stir the controversy pot. It's another gem from the creative mind of Rich Orloff (Advanced Chemistry) and served just prior to the November 2014 elections. Take a break from the maddening commercials and negative mudslinging for a very interesting and entertaining look into American politics.
