We're all set for Arcadia this Wednesday night at 7 PM. I just re-read the play over the weekend and am excited to dig in.
I see eight "yes"'s on the website and a few maybes too. If you haven't RSVP'd yet, but plan to come, please update your RSVP on the website, just so we know whether to wait for you.
See you at Bliss!
LADY CROOM: But Sidley Park is already a picture, and a most amiable picture too. The slopes are green and gentle. The trees are companiably grouped at intervals that show them to advantage. The rill is a serpentine ribbon unwound from the lake peaceably contained by meadows on which the right amount of sheep are tastefully arranged - in short, it is nature as God intended, and I can say with the painter, "Et in Arcardia ego!" "Here I am in Arcadia," Thomasina.
THOMASINA: Yes, mama, if you would have it so.
LADY CROOM: Is she correcting my taste or my translation?
THOMASINA: Neither are beyond correction, mama, but it was your geography caused the doubt.
Meet others who enjoy reading plays aloud. Amateurs and first-timers are absolutely welcome. We've enjoyed a wide range of plays... from Moliere to Albee, Neil Simon to Shakespeare, Chekhov to "The Laramie Project". Meetups happen once a month on a Monday evening at 7 PM, in a public space, emphasis on the word "pub". We typically end around 9:30 or so.
