The rest of the story … “Can’t go”

We also can’t go on the trip with Busboys & Poets Saturday, July 24, 2010, to the Contemporary American Theater Festival in Shepherdstown, West Virginia.  The $98 (see comment below about a price reduction) purchase includes roundtrip transportation and admission to two plays:  Lidless by Frances Ya-Chu Cowhig and White People by J.T. Rogers.  However, we were lucky to see the presentation of a segment of White People by the actors recently when we attended the A.C.T.O.R. meeting at Busboys & Poets on June 6.  A.C.T.O.R. (A Continuing Talk on Race) occurs on the first Sunday of each month at 4:00 p.m. (but  it will probably skip July 4 because it is a holiday).  We had read the play in advance because we were unfamiliar with it and wanted to be able to join the discussion, but the actors truly brought it to life.  The play also raised some issues and conversations that I did not include in my novel Well Considered so it was interesting to us in that respect.  If I’m going to name this post “The rest of the story” it really should include our previous experiences at Busboys & Poets, how we started going there,  and the authors we have heard, so maybe I’ll do a “Busboys & Poets … reprise.” Watch for it.
