Third Avenue Playhouse is presenting PlayWorks 2021, a series of online play readings presented on the first and third Friday evenings of the month through June. The first play – Lucy Kirkwood’s The Children – will be streamed live Feb. 5, 7 pm, in partnership with NEA Big Read: Door County.
In The Children, two retired nuclear scientists reside in an isolated cottage by the sea as the world around them crumbles. Together they plan to live forever on yogurt and yoga, until an old friend arrives with a frightening request. Admission to the virtual reading is free, but patrons must register at thirdavenueplayhouse.com to receive a link. Donations will be gratefully accepted. A live talkback with the cast and director will follow the reading.
