Shooting Star

Happy Valentine’s Day from the Monkeys! Join us tonight at 7:30pm for a free play reading at the Dairy Barn Arts Center.

We will be presenting a different play tonight than originally advertised: Steven Dietz’s comedy Shooting Star. Snowed in overnight at a middle-America airport, college lovers Elena Carson and Reed McAllister have an unexpected and life-altering reunion.

“Steven Dietz sends a tender valentine to middle-age in SHOOTING STAR, a smart and sweet comedy from one of the American theater’s most-produced playwrights. Dietz’s gift as a writer is an acute attention to our modern language. He elevates ordinary conversation to a kind of music. Dietz makes reality poetic.” —Austin-American Statesman.

The reading is directed by Rebecca VerNooy and features Janice Paxson Evans and Brian Evans. Come join us for a great play, cookies and coffee (or something from the bar), as we celebrate Valentine’s Day Brick Monkey style!
