We schedule frequent play readings to help the play selection committee hear a script come to life, but even more importantly, to allow people who may not have the time or the courage to take on a role in our staged productions to have a chance to exercise their voice as an actor. Reading the script in this informal supportive setting provides “safe” opportunities for actors to practice “cold” readings of unfamiliar material. At the end of the reading, we solicit opinions from both readers and listeners about the suitability of the show for the M&M stage.
First, the big news for those who haven't been for a while - we’ve moved to:
The Garden Home Community Library Annex
(Formerly known as The Garden Home Community Store)
7306 SW Oleson Rd.

Drive into the Thriftway shopping center at the intersection of Garden Home Rd. and Oleson Rd. Park in the area closest to Oleson Road. The Library Annex is on the Oleson Rd. side of the building that houses Starbuck’s, and is the last storefront in the front row facing Oleson Road.

What: "Rabbit Hole" by David Lindsey-Abaire
Winner of the 2007 Pulitzer Prize
Becca and Howie Corbett have everything a family could want, until a life-shattering accident turns their world upside down and leaves the couple drifting perilously apart. RABBIT HOLE charts their bittersweet search for comfort in the darkest of places and for a path that will lead them back into the light of day.
"A perceptive and poignant study in the day-to-day aches of bereavement: problems with personal intimacy, the uneasy friends who don't call, the emptiness in a house packed with reminders…Heartbreaking in its theme and details, RABBIT HOLE is a beautifully crafted work of great sensitivity." —Star-Ledger.
Characters: 2 men and 3 women, ranging from teens to 60s+
