Mar 11: Bountiful Gifts (Reading)

Chicago Dramatists' Saturday Series: MARCH
Playwrights, theatre artists, and the general public convene in the Chicago Dramatists' theatre to witness the birth of a new work for the stage and to participate in its development by offering feedback to its playwright. The plays are always directed and rehearsed and are presented with minimal staging. After each reading, the audience members are invited to fill out written response sheets and to join in a post-reading discussion.

Bountiful Gifts

By Dan Noonan

It’s the 1990’s and as usual, Rosemary, the matriarch of the Sullivan clan, is hosting Thanksgiving for her somewhat dysfunctional and contentious family. But this year the stakes are especially high because her husband Ed was just offered a big transfer/promotion out to California. But Rosemary, who has devoted her life to her family, does not want to move so in order to convince Ed to stay, she is determined to make this the most peaceful, joyous, family affirming Thanksgiving of her career.

This event is FREE ($7 suggested donation at the door) and open to the public.
