Fall for the Book Podcast feat. Richard Washer & the Rose Theatre Actors
Monday, October 18, 10 am via Soundcloud & Spotify
About the Event
Richard Washer, resident playwright at The Rose Theatre Company discusses his new play, Dubliners in Exile after actors perform a scene. In the play, James Joyce wakes up disoriented from a deep sleep to a timeless world at once strange and yet familiar where he knows something important needs to get done quickly, but he can’t remember what it is. As he searches for clues, an ever-changing procession of circumstances and characters distract and confuse him. Will he remember in time?
An in-person reading of Dubliners in Exile will occur at The Rose Theatre on October 19 and 20th. Link to purchase tickets coming soon. Performances and First Draft events are free-of-charge, no tickets necessary but seats can be saved via this link: https://www.rosetheatre.net/contact/seats
