Double Bill of Play Readings for Wendell Berry Fans

As part of Door County Reads programming, Unitarian Universalist Fellowship is hosting a play reading with Isadoora Theatre Company on Feb. 1 at 2 pm.

Isadoora will present a reading of two one-act plays; directed by actor, writer, poet and playwright Henry Timm, along with local actors Ginger Auld, Andy Hall, and Mary Hall.

The 75th by Israel Horovitz will enable members of the audience to eavesdrop on the reunion of high school classmates 75 years after graduation. Touching, funny and revealing, the play captures the sweep of long life, and the sense of how significant, in our later years, are the decisions and actions of youth.

From Door County Reads author Wendell Berry’s book of poetry, Farming: A Handbook, his play The Bringer of Water follows a moment in the lives of Old Jack and other familiar Port William, Kentucky characters. These brief, poetry-rich scenes are set on a single day in early July of 1946, and offer a poignant glimpse into Berry’s other published works that focus individually on members of the Beechum, Coulter and Feltner families.

Light refreshments will be served, and all are welcome. UUF is located at 10341 Water Street in North Ephraim.
