My Reading @ Single Carrot Theatre Is Coming Hard Round The Bend

12 Feb

February Footlights

Yes, “B-SideMan” has a reading sponsored by the Dramatist Guild. I’m psyched because I’m reading it. How ’bout dem apples. Him wrote it. Him read it. Want details? Of course you do. No disrespect to Ted Gettinger, but I highlighted ALONZO’S info. I’ve been working like A HEBREW SLAVE over this play. And if my buddy Michael is out there — yes, it has the story of our bicycle ride to the reservoir and the complications that arise over butt-dialing. But the play description says it all really.

Baltimore Footlights

Thursday, February 19 @ 7 PM
Baltimore Footlights Reading Series presents two works in process:

Corn, a one-act play by Ted Gettinger
B-SideMan, a narrative solo performance piece by Alonzo LaMont
Regional Rep Brent Englar hosting at Single Carrot Theatre
2600 North Howard Street, Baltimore, MD 21218
Free street parking is available in the surrounding neighborhood.

Please join us for readings of two new works by DG members:

Corn is the story of two lifelong friends living what appears to be the perfect life in paradise. After one faces a devastatingly public humiliation at the hands of the girl he thought was “the one,” these two friends must determine how to continue living when the dream has become a nightmare and paradise has become your own personal hell.

In B-SideMan, a middle-aged African-American man reflects on growing up black but not angry, his life as a playwright, experience as an exotic dancer, the loss of his son, his journey from “individual satellite” to married man – and ultimately his ongoing battle to keep his creative journey alive.

The event is free and open to Dramatists Guild members and non-members. You may reserve tickets by emailing Brent Englar atbenglar@dramatistsguild.com. (Tickets are not required, but they will help us know how many attendees to expect).

A brief talkback with the writer will follow each reading. Please note that we will begin at 7 pm to better accommodate both readings, and we will serve complimentary wine between readings.

    Love the description of the play. It does capture the spirit of the journey. Wish I could be there to see the performance. I’m sure that you will make the writer proud.
