The second performance in the 2013-2014 Staged Reading Series at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette will be The Sleeper by Catherine Butterfield.
It will be Tuesday, October 22 at 7:30 p.m. in the historic Monon Depot Theatre at 320 N. 5th Street - the corner of 5th Street and North Street - in downtown Lafayette.
A suburban "security mom," shell-shocked by the new post-9/11 reality, finds herself irresistibly drawn to her son's tutor, a handsome young man with political leanings far different from her own. Her "awakening" leads to a bizarre series of events that blow the lid off her previously sheltered existence and change the lives of all around her. A dark and slightly zany comedy.
Staged readings are Pay What You Can events. Tickets are available the night of the reading at the box office, and a question-and-answer session between the director, actors and audience immediately follows each performance.
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.
