Upcoming Readings



Ax of Love

by Ernest Thompson
Monday, September 8, 7pm

From the Academy Award-winning writer of ON GOLDEN POND, this 30-year journey through the brutality of love begins when four students meet in college in 1970. Trenchant, recklessly funny and touching, AX OF LOVE includes more violence than most love stories, not to mention rage, redemption and even the ultimate act of love – euthanasia.


by Josh C. Manheimer
Monday, October 6, 7pm

A Midwest cooking instructor tracks down her ambitious, Nobel-seeking fiancee in the jungle of Papua, New Guinea only to discover that he has married a 13-year-old cannibal in order to learn why the tribe is dying of a mysterious slow degenerative virus called KURU.   Sparks fly when she is courted by the Chief wearing only a penis gourd.   It's "The Big Bang Theory" in a jungle hut on stilts.
