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.
The staged reading of The Sleeper will be Tuesday, Oct. 22 at 7:30 p.m. in the historic Monon Depot Theatre at 320 N. 5th Street in downtown Lafayette - the corner of 5th Street and North Street. It is a Pay What You Can event.
A question-and-answer session between the cast, director and audience will immediately follow the 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.
