Play Reading Series

PORTSMOUTH — The 2013-14 Play Reading Series returns to the Players’ Ring on Wed., September 25, at 7:30 p.m., with members and friends of Generic Theater reading “Shoulders,” a dramatic comedy by local playwright Jeffrey Kinghorn.

San Francisco, 1942, as the world plunges deeper into World War II, the U.S. remains devastated by the attack on Pearl Harbor and expects a Japanese invasion on the west coast. A family of courageous women helps their neighbor escape internment at a time when the country gives in to fear, for it looks like the Allies just might lose the war.

Along with Kayoko Tazawa, of Exeter, the play is cast with Generic Theater regulars Betsy Kimball, Cathy Wolff, Mike Pomp, Sheri-Lynne Hinton and Barbara Hilton. Playwright Jeff Kinghorn is also a novelist and writes a detective series, featuring P.I. Ted Mitchell, set in Houston. He currently teaches Playwriting at UNH.

Barbara Hilton of Portsmouth directs this sit-down reading, and the playwright will be present to hear feedback after the performance.

The Players’ Ring is at 105 Marcy Street, Portsmouth, and admission is free. No reservations are required.
