An Evening of Short Play Readings by Bill McCann, Jr. (Berea, KY: Sept 10)

The Berea Arts Council recently announced an evening of short play readings by Lexington playwright Bill McCann, Jr. The monthly Second Friday Reading, Friday, September 10 will be held at 7:30 p.m. at Berea Arts Council’s ArtSpace, 116 N. Main Street, Berea, Ky.

Bill is a graduate student in Theatre at the University of Kentucky, a tutor in the BCTC writing center, a founding member of the Kentucky Playwrights’ Workshop, Inc. and a co-founder (with Greta Fields) of 517 Playwrights. Bill is executive producing this year’s Kentucky Festival of New Plays, which will be held November 19th and 20th at The Bard’s Town, 1801 Bardstown Road, Louisville, KY. The event will be sponsored by the KPW and The Bards Town.

The dramatic and entertaining short plays to be read contain adult language and content. In Barn Yard Conversation a cow falls for a pig. Before the dinner rolls rise in There Is No Wrigley Field a marriage falls apart. And we’ll hear about a Christmas party that turns out badly for the ‘host’ family in Christmas Party.

There is no admission charged for this event, but a donation of $5 is encouraged to help support the work of the BAC. For additional information on the Second Friday program please contact the Berea Arts Council at (859) 985-9317.

The Kentucky Arts Council, the state arts agency, supports the Berea Arts Council with state tax dollars and federal funding from the National Endowment for the Arts.
