In the 2019 staged reading series, "One From the Shelf", the Evergreen Playhouse is proud to present “Gossip” by Brian Hampton and “The Other Room” by Ariadne Blayde. Join us for concessions at 7:00 and a night of entertainment. Cost: Pay-what-you-decide at the end of the show.
In “Gossip”, A group of high school theatre students befriends a charming yet sinister new student named Gossip. She immediately makes herself right at home as she secretly manipulates and twists the truth to get what she wants. But as her new friends begin to figure it all out, they turn on her as ruthlessly as she went after them, leading to a surprisingly twisted ending.
In “The Other Room”, Austin is a brilliant teenage astronomer who happens to have autism. Lily is his popular classmate who happens to have an interest in astronomy. When a chance encounter after school leads to a growing connection between them, Austin's imagination, intelligence, and constant struggles to connect with the world are revealed in the form of four characters representing his inner life. By turns funny and heartbreaking, The Other Room is a compelling and sensitive glimpse into a unique and misunderstood mind.
