    26 people passed up Halloween parties in favor of an evening of great food, good company and theatrics- we did cold readings from one-act vegan themed plays from antiquity: classic characters like Leo Tolstoy, Leonardo da Vinci, the Buddha, Jesus... Historian and Playwright Rynn Berry, down from NYC, set up the scenes and the dialogue brought to life some amazing aspects of ethical veganism, embedded in history.
