Staged reading of David Mamet's
Keep Your Pantheon!

One performance only:
Saturday, July 18, 2:00 pm
Penfield Community Center, 1985 Baird Road

Directed by David C. Woodworth, Keep Your Pantheon is a comedy set in early Roman times from the man who brought us Glengarry Glen Ross, which ventures deeper into sketch territory, recalling the kind of gleefully anachronistic material mined back in the day by Sid Caesar or Carol Burnett.

An impoverished acting company on the edge of eviction is offered a lucrative engagement. But through a series of riotous mishaps, the troupe finds its problems have actually multiplied, and that they are about to learn a new meaning for the term "dying on stage."

FREE admission, donations gratefully accepted
