Need Something To Do Monday?

Posted By on Mon, Jul 18, 2011 at 7:00 AM

In an age in which the dominant communication paradigm is taken from the Billy Idol school of thought, "more, more, more," there's something to be said for the simple streamlined zen of minimalism. Instead of clogging up your mind with noise and shiny things, you can see what really matters more clearly.

So today, instead of a full production, why not go the pared-down route and see a play reading?

Tonight is the second play of the 2011 incarnation of Alley Repertory Theater's reading series, Plays From the Alley. This week's offering is Kingdoms of Rot, by Thomas Newby.

From the press release:

Travis is at a low point in his life—his girlfriend is leaving him, he's addicted to painkillers, he's lost his job and his motivation to live is wavering. Travis slips into a dream world of his own making to escape his troubles—but can he escape the Kingdom that might just kill him?

The play will feature David Cowan, Taylor Hawker, Amela Karadza, Freddie Louckes, Jaime Nebecker, Leah Reynolds, David Rose and Damon Torres as readers.

It starts at 8 p.m. at Visual Arts Collective and costs $10 at the door.
