Thursday, November 18

From Kathleen Warnock...

Greetings DCW fans!

Perhaps you have noticed that I did not send out a notice for the November
reading¦that is because we aren't having one! (Which is pretty considerate of me to tell you on the day!)

Due to scheduling conflicts, we're skipping this month and roaring straight ahead (so to speak) into December and Best! Lesbian! Erotica!

However, before that lovely happening, I'd like to tell you about another event taking place a bit further uptown from Dec. 9-11 that may be of interest to DCW fans:

En Avant Playwrights, in association with the Hunter College Theater Department, presents Night Rides,an evening of five short plays at the Frederick Loewe Theater, Dec. 9-11 at 8pm and Dec. 11 at 2pm. In addition to the New York premiere of Tina Howe's The Divine Fallacy, the evening includes Glass Highways by David Marrero, Travelby Dan Shore, Not at Home, by yours truly, andThe Raving by Ed Valentine.

If you've attended any of the DCW readings, you've seen the work of four of these playwrights! Tina Howe read her The Divine Fallacy in our series, David Marrero read Glass Highways and Ed Valentine brought Susan Barnes Walker as Laura Bush to KGB just a few months ago (Susan is featured in Tina's play this time ˜round). And well, you hear ME every damn month!

Tickets are $12, $5 for students, seniors and free for CUNY students/staff. I can be talked into comps if you have a good enough reason. (I shouldn't have said that)

For reservations, call 212/561-1062. For more information, email
