    Calling all theater lovers and thespians! Forget the pressure of auditions, curtain calls, and performances--in this fun, informal play-reading group, we'll read classic plays simply for our own entertainment. One full play will be covered during two sessions. When Shaw saw "The Importance of Being Earnest," in 1895, he decided to show Oscar Wilde how to really write comedy. The result, in 1897, was "You Never Can Tell," loaded with dazzling wit and pointed jabs at turn of the century British society. Set in an English seaside resort, a young, penniless dentist is swept up into the delightful world of a formidable feminist authoress and her three eccentrically-raised children, none of whom know the identity of their father. Invited to lunch, the dentist instantly falls in love with the elder daughter and must now negotiate a maze of family dramas, lawyers, and long-lost fathers, aided and abetted by a kindly old waiter. Enlarged-print (14 pt.) scripts provided. Pre-register by Jan 6. Class will be held only on Wednesdays, Jan 11 and Feb 8.
