ONE PERFORMANCE ONLY! April 22, 2006 8 PM St. Andrewʼs Church 163 Main Street, New Paltz, NY Admission: $10 Call 255-3102 for reservations *** An exceptional collection of three short stories written by master storytellers and interpreted by three of MMSCʼs talented readers.
The Fix by Percival Everett (from damnedifido) • Read by Jack Kroll
A stranger gets a job in a sandwich shop and fixes everything in sight: a manual mustard dis- penser, a mouthful of crooked teeth, thirty-two parking tickets and a sexual-identity problem.
Personal Testimony by Lynna Williams (from Texas Bound) • Read by Elizabeth Barrows
A nine-year old girl discovers that she can fabricate “personal testimonies” for the kids at her summer Bible camp who just canʼt come up with anything dramatic to confess.
Orientation by Daniel Orozco (from The Seattle Review) • Read by Julie Eads Woolley
A first-day-on-the-job tour of the office. Si- multaneously sinister and fun, impersonal and human, very sly, very cool.
Close out April with these three wry, bittersweet and gently funny tales about how the course of true life never does run straight.
