Staged Reading Presents 'West Moon Street'

Students from the Staged Readings, Performing Literature class will present the comedy “West Moon Street” at 6 p.m. Oct. 17 in the Magruder Hall Planetarium.

In the play, adapted from an Oscar Wilde short story, a young nobleman from Oxford learns that he is destined to commit a murder and believes it is his duty to get it over with before his upcoming marriage. Since his education hasn’t provided him with the required skills, he flounders in comic style through a series of mishaps as he tries to choose his victim.

Staged reading is a new course created under the theatre department’s Advanced Studies and Projects. It is intended to improve student’s work in a performance style that is being used more frequently. Upcoming staged reading performances include the dark comedy “Chamber Music” on Nov. 14 and “Picasso at the Lapin Agile,” a comedy by Steve Martin, on Dec. 3. All performances will be in the planetarium and admission is free.
