OUR NEXT STAGED READING


CPI NEW VOICES - THE GHOST GIRL & LILY BLOSSOMS

The Ghost Girl by 18-year-old Ariel Rodgers opens Cincinnati Playwrights Initiative’s 2020. A boy and his father move into a home that proves to be haunted by a pursued and frightened girl. How the boy-ghost relationship plays out will surprise you.
The title says it all -- by Greg Hatfield, comprises the second part of the evening: a magazine writer covering gardening has a back-and-forth with a married colleague and ends up changing beats. Tickets, only $10 apiece, may be had by calling (513) 621-2787 or by going on line at www.CincinnatiArts.org, or at the Fifth Third box office on the evening of performance.

CPI NEW VOICES - ANGELS

The 'angels' who are the title characters in Michael Oppenheim’s play are hospital personnel desperately trying to keep focus on patients and their healing in the face of budget-slashing administrators who look upon the bodies of the sick as commodities, matters of profit and loss. The health heroes come across as kind of latter-day M*A*S*H medics, battling overwork, fatigue and budgetary assault with humor and compassion. Tickets for only $10 apiece may be had by calling (513) 621-2787 or by going on line at www.CincinnatiArts.org. Or get ‘em at the door on the 12th.
