Sierra Stages and the Miners Foundry will present Times Like These on Thursday, February 23, 2017. Times Like These, written by John O’Keefe and directed by Sands Hall, is the next installment of Theater By the Book, a series of informal play readings for the community.
In 1930s Berlin, a headstrong, fiercely talented lead actress discovers she is no longer welcome in her theatre, because she is a Jew. With humor and compassion, irony and pathos, O’Keefe examines how a fascist movement gets underway, and asks us to ponder how “times like these” come about.
We are excited to have John O’Keefe join the cast and director of Times Like These in a talk-back following the reading.
Doors open at 7:00 p.m. and the performance begins at 7:30 p.m. Admission is free with a $10 suggested donation. Advance tickets are available online, in person or by phone at the Miners Foundry, or at the door.
Sierra Stages is a community theater which enriches the cultural life of Nevada County by providing high quality, affordable and accessible performances for everyone. Among our goals is to create an ongoing and viable community theater in the Grass Valley and Nevada City area.
