It’s a toss-up which is cru­eller – April or Jan­uary. But here’s a kind cut in the midst of this Jan­uary: In a coffee house am­biance, a cast of 14 are putting on a the­atri­cal read­ing of The Cru­ellest Month. It’s a ra­dio play, com­plete with sound ef­fects, based on the well-known novel by Town­ships mys­tery writer Louise Penny, and adapted by play­wright Eric Alexan­dre.

Two per­for­mances are planned, one on Fri­day, Jan­uary 22, and the other on Satur­day, Jan­uary 23, both at 7 p.m., at UUEstrie, 201 Main Street, North Hat­ley. All the pro­ceeds go to ben­e­fit UUEstrie and two lo­cal Syr­ian refugee ini­tia­tives.

The play di­rec­tor, Phyl­lis Bax­ter, has a cast that in­cludes some well-known names in the area. In or­der of ap­pear­ance, they are Es­ther Saanum, Su­san Ma­caulay, contd page
