Play Reading Group Meets Oct. 19

BLUE HILL — The public is invited to participate in the Blue Hill Public Library Play Reading Group on Wednesday, Oct. 19, from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at the library.

The play selected for this month is Richard Brinsley Sheridan’s “The School for Scandal.”

One of the most famous comedies of manners in the English language, “The School for Scandal” satirizes the behavior and customs of upper classes through witty dialogue and an intricate and skillful plot. Sheridan turns scandal mongering into an art form full of vivacious characters and venomous tattle. The play was first performed on May 8, 1777, at the Drury Lane Theatre in London.

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.

For more information, contact the library at 374-5515 or Michael Donahue at 374-5248 or [email protected].
