)-- The New Works Reading Series returns to North Coast Repertory Theatre with Small Talk, by Deborah Serra on September 12th at 7:30pm.
Small Talk is the story of two, mid-life sister’s who take a poorly planned road trip to Ireland. They accidently become trapped in an abandoned medieval tower, where the humor slowly fades, and an examination of their lives leads to an unexpected conclusion – illustrating that we don’t know each other as well as we think. David Ellenstein directs: Katie Karel, Shana Wride and Denise Young in this free reading. Ryan Ford is the Stage Manager.
