“The Girls” and
"The Lover"

A Word for Word Off the Page Reading

June 19 | 7 PM  in Z Below

Produced by Word for Word's Associate Artist Group
Directed by Becca Wolff

Off the Page staged readings are the first step in developing a Word for Word production—taking a short story from the page to the stage. In this installment we are featuring two stories by Joy Williams: "The Girls" (from Best American Short Stories 2005), "a story in which evil reigns, front and center", as well as "The Lover."

"Williams is...the heir to Flannery O'Connor"—Atlantic Monthly

Come see the very first steps of our process, and, after the reading, let us know what you think!

Off the Page readings are free to the public, but we do suggest a $20 donation, and reservations are strongly encouraged. Click on the button to the left for both.
