Announcing the world premiere in the 2015-2016 staged reading series: JS Green's "The Kegger"

During the staged reading series at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette, at least one script by a local playwright is selected for a world premiere. The script chosen for the 2015-2016 season is The Kegger by JS Green.

In The Kegger, Charley Jennings works at a job he hates. His family life veers from crazy to just depressing. His only anchor is his best friend, Loober, who once saved Charley's life. Now, Loober has gotten in a jam with a fast-talking con man and Charley must save him. But things don’t work out as planned.

Other scripts by local playwrights that have received a world premiere during the nine-year-old series include:

* 2007-2008 - Pia Zadora Sings Gershwin by Deborah Gray and A Very Bad Day for Brandon Butterworth by Scott Haan
