New Play Reading Series: “Dumb Puppy” BY Elizabeth Spreen

Reading - Literary | May 3 | 4-6 p.m. | Dwinelle Hall, Room B-4

 Department of Theater, Dance & Performance Studies, Townsend Center for the Humanities

"Dumb Puppy" is a mystery play for the 21st century, for the United States, taking place in the future when the surveillance state has overstepped its bounds domestically. The play is elliptical, filtering through the mind of K, a mother in Lawton OK, and revolving around a mashup of a salon weekend at Marie Antoinette’s Hameau de le Reine meets Andy Warhol’s Silver Factory meets Studio 54 meets Johnny Depp’s filmography.

Join us for a reading of the play "Dumb Puppy" by Elizabeth Spreen, followed by a discussion with the playwright. Presented by the Contemporary Drama Working Group.
