Readers’ Theater is also known as Interpretive Theater because it offers an opportunity for the cast and the audience to discuss the content. It became popular during and following the Second World War when resources to produce plays were scarce.

What is it?

  • No costumes, no sets, no props, no movement.
  • Just narration and discussion.
  • It’s an interactive way to present literature in a dramatic form.

These scripts are adaptations of literature with ethical, moral, and/ or societal issues which invite robust discussions. Please join us in the audience as we discuss salient topics from the narration of literary works, offering us the opportunity to reflect and refine our attitudes and beliefs. A light supper will be available.

MARCH 1
6-8 P.M.
A Retrieved Reformation
O. Henry 

RSVP HERE

Released prisoner must make a decision to help free a young child locked in a bank and risk revealing his criminal “safe-cracking” skills of his past.  He would stand to lose his job and the future he desperately wants. As usual in O. Henry’s works, there is a surprise ending!


MARCH 22
6-8 P.M.
One Eye, Two Eyes, Three Eyes
A Very Grimm Fairy Tale

RSVP HERE

Two-Eyes is different from her sisters and others, because she has just two eyes. This is a Cinderella theme and covers the issues of family systems theory. This will explore being different and the issue of bullying. This is a great discussion forum for all, especially for families with younger children. All of this can be found in this Grimm’s fairy tale.

  • GENRE: Folktales
  • THEME: Being different

APRIL 12
6-8 P.M.
Fortitude
Kurt Vonnegut

The issues of robotics and their inherent ethical dilemmas have broader implications, and much to inform us in our extended decision-making processes.
