Event Title: New Play Reading Series: The Treacle of Life byJames Barry Ticket Link:
The SmithCollege Department of Theatre New Play Reading Series presents, The Treacle of Life ( A Western Lila in One Act ) by James Barry. Set in a dive bar outside time where the jukebox plays itself, Charlie and Chip examine the dynamics of their relationship over a bottomless bottle of whiskey. Then Chuck shows up. A woo-woo rock 'n' roll romp in which the temporal and the infinite dance together until the crows come home. Or is it cows? Hallelujah! Registration required:
