Reader’s Theater “Sight Unseen”

By David Johanssen

Reader’s Theater returns as four of San Miguel’s finest actors read the complex Obie Award-winning play, Sight Unseen, what the New York Times calls, “a commentary on the sacrifices entailed in getting older and getting ahead” in the super-competitive art world. Sight Unseen was revived on Broadway in a Manhattan Theatre Club production in 1994 for 70 performances. Starring Michael Gottlieb, John Wharton, Bea Aaronson, and Mary Dillon—just good actors reading great plays! Fri, Apr 1, at 7pm, 50 pesos.

Here’s Flint’s Water Crisis, Wed, Apr 6, at 5pm. The water crisis that is currently gripping residents of Flint, Michigan, is one of the most tragic predicaments of recent times. It is all the more tragic for being entirely preventable. This hot documentary explores the events which lead to this catastrophe and offers an urgent portrait of ordinary citizens who are standing up to power, discussion to follow, 50 pesos.

Sat, Apr 2, at 5pm: How Big Oil Conquered the World. From diesel truck to dinner plate, pipeline to plastic product, it is impossible to think of an area of our modern-day lives that is not affected by the oil industry. The story of oil is the story of the modern world; this is the story of how the oil-igarchy is on the verge of monopolizing life itself. Discussion to follow, 50 pesos.
