Join Everyman Theatre’s Female Resident Company Members for an immersive theatre-going experience where a cast of professional actors perform staged readings in an our intimate rehearsal hall.
Patrons will mix and mingle with actors before and after each reading. Curated and directed by the women of Everyman Theatre’s Resident Acting Company, this year’s Salon selections complement each show of the Main Stage season, feature women playwrights’ work and will be hosted by well-known and accomplished women in our area.
Staged reading of The Ruby Sunrise by Rinne Groff. Directed by Megan Anderson.
Hosted by Dr. Barbara Landau
Rinne Groff’s The Ruby Sunrise is a searing look at one family’s compulsion to shatter “that highest, hardest” glass ceiling. Ruby, a farm girl from Indiana, invents the very first television; decades later her daughter, Lulu, a script-girl in New York City, writes the teleplay that brings her mother’s story to life. As we dance through time and place, it is with humor and pathos that The Ruby Sunrise provokes questions about how we can change the world and make it a better place. This is the story of big dreams and dreaming big. Tickets: $15 ($5 students)
