Dan Born's "The Hello Poem" Reading Sep. 12

Night shift has made a break room of their own. It’s outside, under the stars and trees. Under the radar. It’s a place they can drink, and smoke, and wait to go back to work. No one can see the electronics plant from there. No one in the plant can see them. That’s the point. So long as they do the work, no one looks too closely. Someone who thinks of themself as a poet could think of it as friendly ground. So long as no one looks too closely.

Dan Born's play "The Hello Poem" will be read Monday, September 12 at the Midwest Dramatists Center, 3607 Pennsylvania (in the Writer's Place). Doors open at 6:30 p.m. The reading is at 7 p.m. and will be followed by a talkback with the playwright.

As with all MDC readings, no reservation required and it's FREE!

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!
