Former Red Deerian’s comedy, ‘The Bodice Ripper,’ will be read next in Breaking Cover series

Can two couples survive a cabin weekend?

The Bodice Ripper is the next original play that will be read to the public for the first time as part of the Breaking Cover series.

This Red Deer Players play reading, with actors voicing the parts, will happen March 15 at noon at the downtown Red Deer Public Library.

The Bodice Ripper, by former Red Deerian Blaine Newton, is the fouth featured play in Season 2.

The comedy is about two couples who are locked in a cabin to write a romance novel in four days.

“Can’t be any harder than salvaging a marriage or dodging a mob enforcer. Come on, team! This bodice isn’t going to rip itself!” states the play’s description by Newton.

The Red Deer Players invite anyone interested to come “join us for the reading… followed by the ever popular discussion with the playwright.”

Admission is free. Donations are accepted.
