Potluck Productions, an area organization that showcases scripts written by area women playwrights, will present its next First Friday Play Reading on Friday, February 6th, at the Uptown Arts Bar, 3611 Broadway, Kansas City MO.
The show will feature four short plays written by local women and performed via dramatic readings by seasoned actors. The playwrights include Lindsay Adams, Alice Carroll, Glendora Davis and Lezlie Revelle. Glendora Davis will direct.

• What happens when an adopted teenager tracks down her mother who insists she never wanted a child.? In What We Carry by Lindsay Adams, the emotionally charged questions posed by the teen produce some shocking responses from the woman she desperately wants to call “Mom.”

• In What Future by Alice Carroll, an older, but vigorous couple attends a health seminar expecting to learn a few tips for extending their lives. They are ill-prepared for the messages about life and death thrust upon them over dinner.

• Dates and Mates by Glendora Davis offers a look at the “perfect dating scenario” of the future, when robotic human simulators can be rented to provide the ideal companion for any occasion. With an attractive, interesting simulator at your side, the lonely can have a great time and forget about those messy human relationships.

• In Flight Pattern by Lezlie Revelle, a woman can’t quite come to terms with the fact that her young adult daughter has moved out …until she recalls her own struggles to become independent. Her mother still has not adjusted to the change.

Come early to catch the musical prologue to Potluck’s February play reading. Lezlie Revelle, a local singer, songwriter and recording artist, will perform a 45-minute set of original music from 7:00-7:45p.m.
