Next Thursday, playwright Rosalind Bell and Spaceworks artist Marilyn Bennett will perform a free reading of Bell’s play, Under the Circumstances, at Trinity Presbyterian Church. Presented by Conversations on Race and Dukesbay Productions, this autobiographical work examines how the relationship between two women writers is challenged when one of them writes a book spouting vitriol and slurs. The play centers on the tension between the author’s voice versus what her character says.
“The caution about language isn’t kidding,” notes Bennett. “Most of it is mine. I am honored to read this play with Ros, the playwright, and my talented co-actor Ieisha McIntyre. Rehearsals have been such a pleasure!” A short discussion will follow the performance. Reading is free; donations gladly appreciated. Under the Circumstances, Trinity Presbyterian Church, (1619 6th Ave. in Tacoma), 7 pm.
