5/28 Whirlpool (NEW WORKS SERIES)
This Tuesday, May 28th, please join us for our reading in our NEW WORKS SERIES: “Whirlpool” by Ross Tedford Kendall
Once a month, Play Club West is proud to present the reading of a NEW WORK (plays, screenplays, teleplays, one acts, tv pilots), followed by a post-reading talkback.
Two Palm Springs detectives interview NFL superstar Jason Carter over an allegations that he raped an employee at a resort. The two policemen bicker over how to handle the case while the meek accuser, Rebecca, and her aggressive roommate, Clementine, deal with the fallout of reporting the famed athlete.
