Tonight and Tomorrow Night—The Whitman Piece Readings

Dear Friends,
As you may or may not be aware, I am writing a play to open in the first week of April about group creation of art, the United States of America, and the “Spirit of the Age”.  This play will have interesting implications for any who might see it, but certainly for those interested in “America’s Destiny” and the struggle of creating “art”.  
We’re doing two readings of it for comments from general folks before I start working on the “final” draft.  Tonight at 7 p.m. at Touchstone Theatre, and tomorrow at 8 p.m. 
You are cordially invited.  Please come out and help make the play.
Touchstone Theatre, 321 E. 4th. St., Bethlehem, PA 18015
