My dear friend Sarah Ruhl, a truly brilliant and gifted playwright, has a new play up that’s going to be put on as a fundraiser for Kerry. Please check it out if you can, it should be totally worthwhile even just for the play, and it’s going to a great cause.
Also, please feel free to pass this along….
See a new play and organize for JOHN KERRY at the same time!
You are cordially invited:
The Echo Theater Company
will present a reading of
Â Passion Play, part 3
a new play by Sarah Ruhl
Sunday, August 8th
The Zephyr Theatre
(between Vista and Gardner)
$10.00 suggested donation at the door to Democratic National Committee or Moveon.orgÂ
Come together to support John Kerry by seeing aÂ play about the
perils of war, religion, and rhetoric.
Passion Play, part 3:
A small town in South Dakota puts on their annual Passion Play. The man playing Pontius Pilate goes to serve Vietnam, returning only to find that his part has been given away to an equity actor. The man playing the role of Christ ends up betraying his brother. Ronald Reagan visits the town, campaigning for the 1984 election. An unusual look at how the age-old triangle of politics, religion and theatricality can change lives in small-town America.
PLEASE COME AND BE A PART OF THE SOLUTION.
We won’t turn anyone away who can’t afford a donation–the main thing is to come together to prove that the L.A. theater community can make a contribution to this year’s election by organizing! Even small gestures help.
