Play Reading – Kind Sir by Norman Krasna


Join us for our next play reading of the 2023 Season, hosted by Joan Swift and directed by Sam Koogler.
KIND SIR is a play by Norman Krasna that debuted in 1953 starring 1953. “This is the light-hearted tale of a glamorous stage star, who is unhappy with her love life…or the lack of it. But a charming banker enters the picture, and he and the actress fall in love. He tells her that he is married and his wife will not divorce him, and the actress tries to make the best of this situation. But the actress discovers that her banker is not married. He thinks marriage is a fine institution for everyone but him. So she sets out to get her revenge. She accomplishes this by making the banker jealous, but the man she’s chosen to help her doesn’t show up at the last minute, so she persuades her maid’s husband to masquerade as a new admirer, and the stage is set. Then, however, the banker bursts in and asks the actress to marry him, but it’s too late for her to stop the scheme, and a hilarious scene results.”
There are six roles available for reading, so there are plenty of opportunities to join in the fun! Bring a snack to share, beverages will be provided by the Oak Grove.
The play reading will be at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 26 at 151 Heather Lane, Staunton. Email with questions.
