Play Reading: Tiny Alice
The public is invited to participate in the Library's Play Reading Group on Wednesday, April 15 from 6:30 to 9:00 PM at the Library, and every 3rd Wednesday of the month until summer. AliceThis month the group will read Edward Albee's Tiny Alice.

In the play, Miss Alice, the world's richest woman offers a Catholic cardinal $100 million per year with a catch-- Julian, the cardinal's secretary, is to come to Miss Alice's castle to complete the details. While there, Julian falls prey to Miss Alice as she contrives to make him her lover.

The group welcomes inexperienced and experienced readers alike. The only criteria are the love of plays and the joy of reading them aloud among like-minded theater fans. For further information, contact the Blue Hill Library at 374-5515 or Michael Donahue at 374-5248, or by email.
