Hello folks! I know that this blog has been all-nerd-all-the-time lately in prep for True Believers, but I hope you haven’t forgotten that we have a reading of Meron Langsner’s Burning Up the Dictionary coming up on Thursday, May 17 at 7:00 PM at Trident Booksellers & Cafe (which means you can buy coffee/beer/wine/food while you hear the play!)
We’ll have an interview with Local Playwright Meron Langsner up on this blog soon, but first I want to take a moment to introduce you to our fantastic cast for the reading!
