Wordsmiths Books hosts Second Sundays with Working Title Playwrights (WTP). On the second Sunday of each month, a contemporary play is selected for reading aloud followed immediately by discussion. There is no charge to participate, and it's open to anyone who wants to read exciting modern plays.
May's play is Durango by Julia Cho. To the outside world, the Lee boys look perfect: Isaac is on track to be a doctor, and his younger brother, Jimmy, is a champion swimmer. But when their widowed father, Boo-Seng, decides to take them on a road trip to Durango, Colorado, the carefully constructed facades of all three begin to crack. As they near their destination, tempers flare, old wounds reopen, and secrets are revealed. Durango is the story of a man who sacrificed everything --a home, a country-- for the American Dream, and whose sons must now grapple with the consequences of that choice.
Please join us for a lively reading and discussion of this play. It's FREE! It's FUN! For more information, please contact WTP's Managing Artistic Director, Jill Patrick, at 404-441-2716.
