Play Reading Coming Up -- "Bessie and Louise," by Marty Seigel

Marty Seigel, local writer, director, and theatre teacher, has announced a reading of her new play, "Bessie and Louise" next week. Seigel describes the play as "about a couple of salty seniors and a dumpster diver who conspire to take back the 'hood!"

The reading, scheduled for 6:30 p.m., Monday, April 26, at TheatresCool, 403 North Main Street in Bloomington, is open to the public.

I read a few small roles and some stage directions in a workshop version of the play back in February, and at that time, Marty's play struck me as funny and tart, kind of a cross between "Arsenic and Old Lace" and "Dead End." That's not a common cross, and "Bessie and Louise" is well worth a look for theater enthusiasts.
