If it’s summer then it must be time to plan an entertaining afternoon of lunch and theater brought to you by the Friends of the Weston Library. Play With Your Food will make its only local appearance this summer on Tuesday, July 18th at 12:30 pm with a new program of one act play readings and featuring an array of favorite Fairfield County- based professional actors!
Kicking off the afternoon is an homage to underappreciated librarians everywhere: Kickass Librarian by Jason Wilkins introduces us to a new kind of superhero: this librarian serves her patrons, stands up for democracy, saves the Bill of Rights and even scores a hot date – all in a day’s work! Ten Dollar Drinks by Joe Pintauro takes a look at two old friends, and the price they paid for their (non-librarian!) career choices. Another look at the choices we make comes in Playdate, written by Wilton playwright/filmmaker Megan Smith-Harris. Sometimes a playdate can be far more loaded than expected. Rounding out the program is A Family Affair by Albi Gorn. Will the resurfacing of long-buried family secrets threaten a young couple’s future? Albi Gorn knows just how to solve this family’s problems!
Play With Your Food is delighted to announce that the professional cast of actors presenting these plays features Nick Brooks, Joanna Keylock, Weston-based Emilie Roberts, Susan Vanech and Allan Zeller. All of these actors are Connecticut- based and, in addition to their other professional gigs, have appeared in several Play With Your Food productions through the years.
Tickets are $30 and include a boxed lunch from Peter’s Market in Weston. Doors at the Weston Library open at noon for lunch and will be followed by the performance at 12:30. This performance of Play With Your Food is partially underwritten by the Friends of the Weston Library. For tickets, please click on this Eventbrite link for easy online ordering.
