Dead Man's Wake staged reading
A staged reading of "Dead Man's Wake," a powerful drama that takes place in Mill Valley, California, in 1969, will be followed by a reception and talk-back with the playwright, actors and director. Written by local playwright Larry Klein, and directed by local actor/director Becky Parker Geist, the play is inspired by an actual incident, the tragic death of a World War II veteran, more than twenty-five years after his return from the war.
In the vein of American stage classics by Arthur Miller, Eugene O'Neill and Tennessee Williams, the story reveals complex family dynamics as each member of the Ogden family struggles to reexamine their lives, and the family's future. It is a poignant, character-driven play, written with brutal honesty in both the dialogue and the emotions revealed. It is a story of tragedy, courage, and ultimately of acceptance.
