The Los Alamos Senior Centers are hosting two free performances of a brief play, SWERVING, written by Robert F. Benjamin.
It is being performed as a “concert reading” by Caroline (“Pip”) Evarts and John Gustafson, with Sally Cassil narrating. SWERVING premiered during the 2015 8×10 Short-Play Festival at Los Alamos Little Theatre. Performances at senior centers this month use an expanded script with a run-time is 16 minutes.
SWERVING is a comedy is about how a codger’s wisdom, longing and congeniality transform a stormy confrontation with a policewoman into a moment of shared compassion.
The first performance was Thursday in White Rock and the second performance is 12:45 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 27, at the Betty Ehart Senior Center in Los Alamos (next to Mesa Public Library). No reservations are necessary, but seating is limited for both shows.
