Blue Hill Public Library Play Reading

6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Blue Hill Public Library
5 Parker Point Rd, Blue Hill, ME, 04614

The public is invited to participate in the Blue Hill Public Library Play Reading Group on Wednesday, May 16th from 6:30 to 9:00 PM at the library, and every 3rd Wednesday of the month until the summer. May’s play will be Philadelphia, Here I Come! (1964) by Brian Friel. In the play, a young Irishman is about to immigrate to America. The play takes place entirely in the hours before he is set to leave Ireland, as he reflects on his relationships with family and friends, vacillating between the comic and the tragic.

The group welcomes inexperienced and experienced readers alike. The only criteria are the love of plays and the joy of reading them aloud among like-minded theater fans. Attendees are also welcome to just sit and listen. For further information, contact the library at 374-5515 or Michael Donahue at 374-5248, or
