They use to spend their days caring for their aging parents, but now they spend their days bemoaning their lack of a life.

Reading Community Players is pleased to announce its upcoming production of “DEATH DEFYING ACTS: Three one-act comedies by David Mamet, Elaine May and Woody Allen.” Bruce McLean directs these short comedies by some of the most talented comedic playwrights. A two-person comedy by the irascible David Mamet, “An Interview” unfolds as a mysterious interrogation. A sleazy lawyer is forced to answer difficult questions and to admit the truth about his life and career. The Interviewer (the Judge) holds the keys to the gates of Hell.
In the wildly funny Elaine May’s “Hotline,” a neurotic woman with enough urban angst to fill a neighborhood calls a suicide crisis hotline late one night. The counselor who gets the call is overwhelmed -- it’s his first night on the job. Although a serious subject, it becomes a delightfully comic situation, with a split stage allowing us to follow both great characters play out their really wonderful roles.
“Central Park West” by Woody Allen provides an hour of constant hilarity. A well-to-do psychiatrist has just discovered that her best friend is having an affair with her husband. She has invited the friend over for a confrontation, after getting somewhat inebriated. Meanwhile, the husband is about to run off with a college student.
Play dates are May 19 and 20 at 7:30 p.m. and May 21 at 2:30 p.m. at Penn State Berks, Perkins Auditorium. Tickets are $15 and will be sold at the door. For group sales or more info, call 610-375-9106.
