BVCT's staged readings continue with 'The Twelve Pound Look'
Bay Village Community Theater will perform the next reading in its 2017 “All the World’s a Stage[d Reading]" series with a performance of J.M. Barrie’s "The Twelve Pound Look."
Written in 1910, Barrie (more famously known for penning "Peter Pan") takes a thoughtful and humorous look at women’s rights in early 20th-century England.
On the eve of his knighthood, Harry Simms is full of the great things he considers he has achieved. A typist has been hired to answer the messages of congratulations. She turns out to be his former wife, Kate, now a freelance typist hired by his current wife. When Harry and Kate meet, the fireworks begin!
Tim Jones, Jackie Scheufler, Peter Toomey and Jessica Williams will be performing this delightful one-act reading.
Performances will be held on Saturday, May 20, at O’Neill Healthcare’s Main Lounge at 2 p.m. and on Sunday, May 21, at Mojo’s Coffee at 6 p.m. The public is invited to attend both performances. Admission is free; donations to Bay Village Community Theater are graciously accepted.
We will also soon be announcing the remainder of the 2017 Staged Reading series as well as our next full production, scheduled for mid-October.
President, Bay Village Community Theater
