First reading is this Saturday, September 11.  The image here is of Gary Minyard who has graciously agreed to read the part of Danny.  
 Here follows an excerpt from The Graveyard Scene from  Act III, Scene 1:
The Ensemble, in an attempt to draw attention to their new work, plan a publicity event in a local graveyard.  Danny, the playwright, losing his mind and not aware that they are acting out a scene from When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloomed, thinks they are burying his son.
