"All Decked Out” & "Road Trip"

C.P.I. OFFERS ONE-ACTS TO MAKE YOU SMILE THROUGH MARCH

Cincinnati Playwrights Initiative will present staged readings of two one-act plays by Barb Timmins (Humble Pie) in the Aronoff Center’s Fifth Third Theater at 7:30 p. m. on Tuesday, March 12. In All Decked Out, a woman in her PJs frantically seeks help when she finds herself locked out of her new home, unable to get off her elevated deck. In Going West, two BFF’s (best female friends) and a niece, sustained by a quantity of pot, head through a desert in an ill-equipped van. The comfort of friendship gives one of the women the strength to get on with her life after she discloses that her long-time marriage has fractured. Tickets: $10 on line at www.CincinnatiArts.org or by ‘phone at (513) 621-2787 or at the door, evening of performance.
