Description

Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving that helps support local causes in communities around the world.  At the Williamston Theatre, we celebrate Giving Tuesday by giving theatre to you. Join us for a day of three play readings! Come for one play or for the whole day. This year, we return to an in-person event!

Readings will begin at 11am, 3pm, and 7pm. Admission is free.

We will be collecting non-perishable food items and personal care products for the Williamston Food Bank. Help us help others this season.

11am
Love and Baseball
by Jerry Montoya

In this romantic comedy Will and Michelle find themselves tangled up as they experience the fact that love is always the answer, but can sometimes be the problem! Like the pristine moments of an unforgettable baseball game, love is also a sport of luck, skill and timing. Love and Baseball speaks to the force of love, the power of connection and the admiration of a sport played like an art form.

3pm
The Glue People
by Sarah Bierstock

Carolyn Erich is off her rocker. Her dead mother says so herself in the opening monologue. So when she asks her three grown daughters to return home for a family meal at Christmas to relay some news, they join with trepidation. What version of their mother they will receive is entirely unclear, never mind what news she might be relaying. The three daughters navigate mom's idiosyncrasies and outlandish behavior with humor and wit, while attempting to handle their own issues of infidelity, infertility and illness.

7pm
Predictor
by Jennifer Blackmer

In 1967, Margaret Crane defied all odds and expectations to become the inventor of the first home pregnancy test. Predictor is the hilarious, energetic, infuriating and inspiring play that sets the historical record straight. A David and Goliath story where Big Business normally crushes everyone and wins, this is a history that you never knew, that deserves to be told, and that leaves us with a sense of hope, joy, and optimism. No matter who ignores us, we can, in fact, change the world.
