Red Deer Players present second season of original play reading series

It kicks off Sept. 15 at downtown library

Red Deer Players is bringing a new season of play readings to the Red Deer Public Library with Breaking Cover — Season 2.

And there’s still room for one more play submission.

The new season will kick off Sept. 15 with a reading of Park Bench With View, by David Haas. The plot concerns a police officer who begins to have her suspicions after hearing the life story of an elderly man.

Directed by Erna Soderberg, the reading features Ashley Mercia and Keith Edwards.

On Nov. 17, Absinthe, Bourbon, Vodka and Saki, by Caroline Russell-King, will be brought to life by director Lori Lane, and actors Fleur Jacobs and Carson Rafuse.

A woman uses her imagination to escape from her inner demons. (This play contains coarse language that may not be suitable for some).

After Mourning, by Mike Czuba, will be read on Jan. 19, followed by The Bodice Ripper, by Blaine Newton on March 15.

The May 10 reading is yet to be announced.

The Red Deer Players is reviewing submissions to fill this final slot for season two. Playwrights with scripts they wish to be considered may submit their work to reddeerplayers@gmail.com.

All readings will take place in the Snell Auditorium at the Red Deer Public Library at the new time of 12 p.m.

There is no admission cost, although a silver collection is held to help Red Deer Players cover costs.

The Breaking Cover series offers an unique opportunity to dialogue with playwrights and gain an understanding of the creative process of penning plays and bringing them to life on stage.
