The audience filling Mojo’s Coffee and More for our reading of ‘Trifles’

We have just finished our third production of our “All the World’s a Stage[d Reading]” series at Mojo’s Coffee.  Attendance for our second show, “Trifles”, performed on July 10th saw a full capacity crowd enjoying the production.  “Trifles” was written by Susan Glaspell in 1916 loosely based on accounts of a murder in Iowa.

Many thanks to director Lisa Ortenzi and actors Bernice Cernoch, Ruth Ann Havasi, Peter Toomey, Max Glenn, and Tim Jones for their work on “Trifles.”

WIFE FOR A LIFE

Wife - Audience

‘Wife for a Life’ drew a large audience at Mojo’s as well!

Our third production, “A Wife for A Life” written by Eugene O’Neill in 1913 concerning two gold miners in the Arizona desert who are in love with the same woman, was performed on August 14th to a near capacity crowd.  Preston Postle, Colin McCauley, Patrick Meehan, and Leigh Ann Miller Spratt gave performances that left the audience quite pleased.  John Hnat directed.

GOOD NEWS CONCERNING STAGED READING SERIES

Bay Village Community Theater and O’Neill’s Healthcare in Bay Village have joined together to present a second location for the staged reading series.  “A Wife for A Life” will be performed in the Main Lobby of O’Neill’s Healthcare on Saturday August 27th at 2 PM and 6 PM.  The public is invited to both performances.

We are looking forward to our partnership with O’Neill’s in the coming months.  It gives us the ability to put on more performances of our one-acts and helps us reach out to the community.
