July 05, 2016 at The GLBT Historical Society in San Francisco.
The first staged reading will feature “Swollen Tongues” by playwright Kathleen Oliver. Written in rhyming couplets, the play is a take on Restoration comedy with a contemporary twist. Thomas and his sister Catherine are both receiving instruction in the powers of poetry from their tutor, Dr. Wise. While Thomas is more prolific than skilled in his praise of his beloved, Sonja, Catherine is strangely mute. The problem? Catherine is secretly in love with Sonja, too.
Admission: Free; $5.00 donation encouraged.
