Charles Baxter:
A Double Header

An Off the Page Reading

Monday, May 21  | 7 PM at Z Space
Directed by Amy Kossow

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. Join us for two stories from Charles Baxter.

"Revelations of the unexpected in the course of mundane day-to-day reality, the fleeting moments that indelibly shape a life, the moral and emotional quandaries that besiege us all. These are the themes that CHARLES BAXTER has made his own over the span of a distinguished writing career..."

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