SPOTLIGHT PLAYHOUSE DRAMATIC READING GROUPWelcome to the new home of the Spotlight Reading Group. The Reading Group is the oldest-running special program for Spotlight, and has been an integral part of the organization since inception. What is it? This is an evening where we gather to share a pot-luck supper, read a play out loud, and share lots of laughter in the process. And it’s fun!
After dinner and a little social time, we sit down to read the play. A volunteer Director will tell us about the characters and the sizes of the parts, and then we’ll draw names from a hat. Depending on the number of parts/attendees, we may throw the names back into the hat for Act 2 and mix it up further! At intermission, it’s time for dessert. We round out the evening by selecting the next play to read, the date for the reading, and the Director.

SYNOPSIS:Two young gentlemen living in 1890's England have taken to bending the truth in order to put some excitement into their lives. Jack Worthing has invented a brother, Earnest, whom he uses as an excuse to leave his dull country life behind to visit the ravishing Gwendolyn. Algy Montcrieff decided to take the name 'Earnest' when visiting Worthing's young and beautiful ward, Cecily at the country manor. Things start to go awry when they end up together in country and their deceptions are discovered - threatening to spoil their romantic pursuits.
