Chicago's Pride Films & Plays to Present Reading of Screenplay THE BACHELORS Today

David Zak of Pride Films and Plays will direct an enhanced staged reading of The Bachelors, a screenplay written by Rick Kinnebrew and Martha Meyer today, January 13, at 2 pm. This free performance will be at Piven Theater, 927 Noyes Street, Evanston.

In a small town during the Depression, an improbable business venture conceals a great love.

Based on a true story, The Bachelors introduces us to Bob Neal, a London interior decorator who returns to his failing Wisconsin hometown in 1934 and hires a local man to help him restore a historic rock cottage.

The Bachelors was a semifinalist for the Great Gay Screenplay Competition, and opens a fresh perspective on gay marriage. Your comments and feedback will help shape this new work.

Rick Kinnebrew and Martha Meyer live in Evanston, Illinois and write plays for children as part of their work at Evanston Public Library.

While the performance is free, we ask you make a $5 suggested donation to benefit the Mineral Point, Wisconsin, Public Library, where Rick and Martha researched this story.

he Bachelors features PFP Artistic Ensemble Members Nicholas Stockwell and Nelson Rodriguez as Edgar and Bob. Also featured are Tom Chiola, Kris Hyland, Joan McGrath, Beth Richards, and Jamie Smith.

Piven Theater is located at 927 Noyes, Evanston. The reading is set for today, January 13 2 p.m. Reservations are not required.
