THEATER BY THE BOOK
Wednesday January 22 at 7:30 PM
THEATER BY THE BOOK is our series of informal play readings co-presented with the Miners Foundry. Now in our 8th Season, we schedule readings throughout the year and present a wide range of works. The director and actors come together and rehearse for a short time. There is no scenery, no costumes, and minimal staging. Check us out and expand your theatrical horizons! Admission to Theater by the Book is FREE, with a suggested donation of $10. For more information click the button below or give us a call at 530.346.3210.

Directed by Laura LeBleu
With Trish Adair, John Ficarra, Heidi Grass, Shannon Harney, Laura LeBleu, and Michele Nesbit
Two sisters (and a melancholy mastiff) live in a ruinous old house on the bleak and fog-enshrouded English moors, dreaming of love and power. When a hapless governess (and a crash-prone moor-hen) arrive out of nowhere, lies are unmasked, loyalties shift, and all are set on a strange and dangerous path until finally – someone reaches the breaking point! A mysterious, menacing, and savagely funny mash-up – as though the Brönte Sisters had been dropped into a comedic production of a play by Samuel Beckett.
