EAG and Oberon Theatre Ensemble Stages Reading of Mark Karafin's MAN IN THE MOON Tonight
The Episcopal Actors' Guild's annual celebration of new work continues with a staged reading of Man in the Moon by Mark Karafin. The reading will be held tonight, March 20 in Guild Hall at 7:00 pm, and followed by a reception. Past Barbour Award winners include Ian August (Donna Orbits the Moon), Lynn Rosen (Apple Cove), and Laura Eason (40 Days).
Summary: In his own garage, Donny awakes to find himself soaking wet and taped to an old wooden chair. Over the course of the day, he'll learn why. Man in the Moon is a tense, dark thriller about fate, justice, and the choices we make.
