THE UC CREATION: STAGED READING & TALKBACK
SMALL TOWN ICONS: A REVENGE PLAY

RSVP NOW!

TUE | DEC 6 |  7PM ET

Join The Uptown Collective at The Dream Center for a staged reading with professional actors of a new artist’s work followed by a talkback! Light food and refreshments will be served.

Uptown Collective staged readings are public performances involving a writer, professional actors, a founding member of the Uptown Collective, and an audience.

Play synopsis: 
It’s the day before the opening night of Mount Vernon’s production of OUR TOWN and all Sabrina wants to do is keep rehearsing because the show needs to be perfect. Her best friend Kimberly just wants to go out before she starts training full-time for the Olympics. However, their small town threatens to suffocate them after an incident with Sabrina, their bible-praising science teacher, and a branding in the shape of the cross. Once their formerly hospitalized friend shows up at their door and the bully who put her there arrives, everything breaks down and two of them end up hurt. A revenge play based on two true small town events, small town icons investigates small town toxicity, Our Town, religion, friendship, and cookies.
