Darren Canady's "for ________ girls" Reading July 11

It's a post-racial, Third Wave, America-in-the-Age-of-Obama kind of world - and the rules for making daring art aren't so clear. When a director and his actors decide to engage a theatrical sacred cow in revolutionary ways, they don't realize they may just be leading it to the slaughter. 

Find out how with Darren Canady's "for ________ girls" on July 11 at the Midwest Dramatists Center, 3607 Pennsylvania. The reading is at 7 pm and will be followed by a talkback with the playwright. As with all MDC readings, no reservation required and it's free!
