The public is invited to participate in the Blue Hill Public Library Play Reading Group on Wednesday, November 16th from 6:30 to 9:00 PM at the Library, and every 3rd Wednesday of the month until next summer. This month the group will read A Sleep of Prisoners, by Christopher Fry, an anti-war “verse drama” in the form of a religious drama.

In the play, four English soldiers are locked up in a church in enemy territory—the stress of it gets to them and two have a fight and have to be separated by the others. That night they all dream that they are characters from the Old Testament and each is seen in the dreams of the others, where they address their issues on a spiritual plane.
The group welcomes inexperienced and experienced readers alike. The only criteria are the love of plays and the joy of reading them aloud among like-minded theater fans. For further information, contact the Blue Hill Library at 374-5515 or Michael Donahue at 374-5248, or Donahue.firstname.lastname@example.org.
