THIRD, Mesa Encore Theatre Play Reading Series, January 11

MET announces the next play in their monthly play reading series:

What:  "Third," the final play written by beloved Pulitzer Prize-winning American playwright Wendy Wasserstein. 

When: Sunday, January 11th, 7:30 pm 

Where:  MET's Black Box on Brown, 318 E. Brown Street (next to Native New Yorker on the NW corner of Brown Rd. and Mesa Drive)

Who:  Director: Janis Ash Webb

Cast:  Deborah Ostreicher, Walt Pedano, Laura Soldan, Trevor Starkey and Kelly Fulcher

Cost:  $5 suggested donation

Description: His name is Woodson Bull III, but you can call him "Third." And Professor Laurie Jameson is disinclined to like his jockish, jingoistic attitude. He is, as she puts it, "a walking red state." Believing that Third's sophisticated essay on King Lear could not possibly have been written by such a specimen, Professor Jameson reports his plagiarism to the college's Committee of Academic Standards. But is Jameson's accusation justified? Or is she casting Third as the villain in her own struggle with her relationships, her age, and the increasingly polarized political environment?
