March 2, 2004 Pistarckle Theater will hold staged readings of two different plays Tuesday, March 2 and March 9. Both are at 8 p.m.
Admission is free for Pistarckle subscribers. Admission for nonsubscribers is $10.
Tuesday's reading is "Artichoke," which portrays marital strife in a Canadian family. Joanna M. Glass wrote the play.
On March 9, Stephen Metcalfe's "Strange Snow" tells the story of three people impacted by the Vietnam War.
Jonn Jorgensen serves as the director.
Pistarckle Theater Director Nikki Emerich said that in staged readings, the actors read the lines. "There is minor movement or sometimes no movement," she said.
These two plays are not ones that would have wide appeal in the Virgin Islands. Therefore, they will not appear as full-fledged productions. "They are addressing subjects we wouldn't normally explore," she said.
Emerich reminded playgoers that they have only six more chances to see Pistarckle Theater's production of "The Nerd."
Set in Terre Haute, Indiana, the comedy is centered around an architect, besieged by personal problems, who is visited by the man who saved his life in Vietnam. The visitor wreaks havoc on the architect's life, and the hilarity ensues.
Performances are Thursday, Friday and Saturday as well as March 11, 12 and 13. All performances are at 8 p.m.
