MST/PDT: 6:30pm - 9pm

The reading will be held at Scottsdale Desert Stages Theatre at Fashion Square.
Synopsis: It is 1996 in rural Kentucky. 72-year old Ollie Jean Tavis, a white woman, and her neighbor/lifelong friend, Manny Bingham Brown, a black man, hold the secret to a tragedy that befell Ollie's husband, Randolph, and their son, Billie, the previous year. As the nature of the catastrophe unfolds by the incessant probing of Ollie's daughter, Sara Hamilton, and her husband, Nate, Ollie and Manny must face the truth of not only what happened that fateful night but the consequences.
Social issues addressed: LGBTQ, racial issues, and women’s rights.
DG Footlights™ is a program, created and moderated by the Dramatists Guild, that connects dramatists with free space in which to hold a public reading of a new work that is currently in development. This initiative operates on a space-grant model: a representative from the Guild will arrange for a venue to donate space during allocated dates and times, and will ensure that the space is available for dramatists to use to present a self-produced reading to the public, with an optional feedback session following the reading.
Attendance is always free and open to all.
