The 2016-17 Concert Reading Series

July 23, 2016 | December 10, 2016

Lifeline continues one of its most beloved new traditions with a fifth season of concert readings, this year featuring ALL NEW ADAPTATIONS!

In July, we present ensemble member Christina Calvit’s world premiere adaptation of Sylvester: or the Wicked Uncle, by Georgette Heyer (Copyright © Georgette Heyer 1957. This performance licensed by arrangement with Heron Enterprises Ltd.).

And for the holidays we present an evening combining ensemble member Jessica Wright Buha’s new adaptation of A Child’s Christmas in Wales by Dylan Thomas and a reading of A Christmas Memory by Truman Capote (Read with permission of The Truman Capote Literary Trust).

Both readings will be directed by Lifeline ensemble members and will feature numerous Lifeline ensemble actors.

Sylvester: or the Wicked Uncle: July 23, 2016
