OUR NEXT STAGED READING

"Face to Face”

by David Greenberg

CHALLENGING I. D. IDEAS IN NEW C.P.I. READING!

Face to Face, David Greenberg’s provocative exploration of troublesome identity issues is Cincinnati Playwrights Initiative’s first 2019 staged reading. Greenberg’s no-holds-barred script, about a father with dark secrets and his self-loathing gay son in an extended slash-and- burn confrontation, will be presented in the Aronoff Center’s Fifth Third Theater January 8 at 7:30 p.m. Distorted Old Testament echoes and controversial contemporary Israeli issues color the decidedly disturbing proceedings. Tickets to Face to Face, priced at only $10, may be had on line at www.CincinnatiArts.org, or by calling (513) 621-2787, or at the door, the evening of performance. This one will generate one heckuva talkback!
