En-Act: Read Through One-Act Plays

Last date: Sunday, Aug. 24, 2014, 3 p.m. (see all dates)

Actors on StageHave you always wanted to be an actor? Want to dust off those drama club skills from high school? Join us this summer to read through one-act plays on Sunday afternoons! Meet in room 207 at 3 p.m. to show us your acting skills.

The one-act play is a gem of literary form, with the same depth of emotion and character development as a full-length play packed into a shortened dramatic event, a form that dates back to the Greek playwright, Euripides. Find one-acts at the library, like Tennessee Williams' 27 Wagons Full of Cotton, and other one-act plays.
