By Resident Playwright Mary Ruth Clarke
When a star struck middle-aged dreamer discovers that her long-time singing teacher has just returned from Manhattan, it can mean only one thing — he has found a producer for the Broadway musical they have created as her vehicle to stardom! Fay has one night to rehearse Sea Side Story, and be more ready than she has been in her whole life ever. (Good bye Kokomo, Indiana!)
About the Saturday Series
Every Saturday afternoon at 2:00 PM (except for holiday weekends), Chicago Dramatists hosts a Saturday Series event in our theatre. Most Saturday Series events are public readings of plays-in-progress.
All plays read in the Saturday Series are directed, rehearsed, and presented with minimal staging. After each reading, the audience members are invited to fill out written response sheets and to join in a moderated post-reading discussion.
We hope you will join us for this Saturday Series event!
