Play Read: The Dead Guy by Eric Coble

PLAY READS ARE BAAACCKK!

In-person play reads are back at Bedford Players!

We’ve really missed our Bedford Players community over the past 6 months and are thrilled to bring back our monthly in-person play reads!

Time/Date:  7:00 pm  – Wednesday, October 7, 2020

Location: Bedford Players Community Theatre (upper level All Saints Anglican Church), 1408 Bedford Highway, Bedford

Come join fellow theatre-lovers for a fun evening as we read the play The Dead Guy by Eric Coble.

Bedford Players’ play reads are an informal, fun gathering where everyone is welcome.

This is not an audition; there is no cost or obligation to participate.  The event is open to everyone interested in reading this script as a group in a social setting.

Come meet some people interested in theatre.  Have a laugh. Have a chat.  Hear, or be part of reading, the play.

THE STORY:  The Pitch: You get one million dollars to spend over the next seven days. A camera crew follows your every move and broadcasts your adventures on national  television. The Hook: At the end of the week…you die. The Best Part: The viewing audience gets to vote on the method of your death! For hard-luck Eldon Phelps, the deal is irresistible. But does America have the stomach for this much reality? What would you do if you had one week until you became…“The Dead Guy”? Stay tuned…

A  biting comedy and a “humorous, thoughtful critique on society’s obsession with other people’s realities”. (L.A. Splash)
