Share Your Thoughts: A Wonderful Suicide

The staged reading of A Wonderful Suicide by Diane Littleton Bahler took place tonight at 7:30 p.m. in the historic Monon Depot Theatre in downtown Lafayette with 94 people in attendance. It was the play's world premiere.

The reading was followed by a question-and-answer session between the audience, the cast, the playwright and the director, Kevin Colby.

Did you attend the staged reading? What did you think about the characters, the plot and the dialogue? What were some of the high points? What do you think the playwright's next steps might be in developing the play? What will you remember about this staged reading?

The mission of Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette is to enhance the artistic and cultural environment of Greater Lafayette through theatrical productions and educational opportunities.

I thought the play weaved in a lot of historical points well as part of the dialogue. That is no easy task.

The Scudder/Stein dialogue reminded me a lot of, if you can believe it, Mr. Miyagi and the Karate Kid's give and take. The young person asking for one thing and the older mentor offering everything but the one thing the younger thinks he wants.

Thanks for offering this to the community.
