Developmental Reading Series
by Susan Jackson
7 p.m. on Sunday, February 1
As part of our mission to nurture and support local playwrights, the Pear offers developmental readings of new full-length scripts for members of the Pear Playwrights Guild.
Taken begins with a newspaper article of an evicted tenant who commits suicide while living in a San Francisco apartment. The face is familiar--is he Corrie's brother Ben? He had been forced out of her family's home years before because of his drug addiction. Corrie’s daughter, Jessie, always felt a special bond with her uncle, despite (or perhaps because of) his problems. Against everyone's better judgment, Corrie decides to face the landlady who evicted him.
