Festival Reading #9: Bill Zimmerman Must Die by Kyle Philip Jackola

Male Chorus-Todd McNerney

When a man brings home a new television to his family he launches himself headfirst into a brand new modern world. But innovation brings technical difficulties as the modern man struggles to understand his place while also trying to bring together an increasingly distant family, and let's not forget there's the matter of Bill Zimmerman and his wife June right next door. Where can he turn when the modern world turns on him, who's really in control here, and why does the new television keep turning on by itself?
About the Festival:
Each year, our New Works Advisory Board reads between 50 and 100 plays taken from the cumulative body of work of student playwrights who will be coming for the current summer session. These plays are ranked and vetted, and ten are selected for staged readings in collaboration with directors associated with our program--Certificate students, visiting faculty and guest artists.
These readings are presented free to the public, but there is limited seating. We also bring in more than a dozen guest responders who are active working theatre professionals from across the country. Many of our festival readings have gone on to be published, produced and won major awards. Come see tomorrow's stars today!
Our festival is presented in collaboration with Mill Mountain Theatre on their Waldron Stage.
