Short plays at Auntie's, Nov. 14

Eight short plays by Sandra Hosking and Nick Stokes
in an evening called "Hit & Run II"
on Saturday, Nov. 14, at 2 pm
at Auntie's Bookstore, 402 W. Main Ave.
E-mail debutpromotions@cs.com or call 838-0206.

Nick Stokes is a Tacoma playwright. Sandy Hosking is co-playwright in residence at Spokane Civic Theatre; she has an MFA from EWU, is editor of Inland NW Homes & Lifestyles magazine, and has had her plays produced all over the U.S. and Canada.

In Stokes' two plays, sisters lie to each other and a couple relaxes at the beach.
In Hosking's six plays, an atheist seeks converts, Vikings have to downsize, a former couple's reunion is bittersweet, and a man must pay a ridiculous tax (among much else).
In addition, Hosking's 7-year-old son will recite a poem entitled "My Bug."

Actors at this staged reading will include Tony and Maria Caprile, Penny Lucas, Will Lund, Emily Hiller, Nina Kelly and Molly Parish.

  1. Thanks for the plug, Bobo. One clarification, my son wrote the poem which will be given a dramatic reading by Penny Lucas and Will Lund.
