Lily’s parents are getting a divorce, and she is not taking it well. To keep Lily out of trouble, her parents make a deal with the neighboring senior home: they will purchase a new copier for the residence if Lily can work there eight weeks. Lily interacts with the residents and is cast in the senior home's annual play directed by the former Rantoul Civic Theatre Director, Mrs. Custenboarder.
The staged reading of Puzzles will take place Tuesday, May 15 at 7:30 p.m. in the historic Monon Depot Theatre in downtown Lafayette. There will be a question-and-answer session between the audience, cast, director and playwright immediately following the reading.
Audience members are encouraged to pay what they can for admission.
