Dirty Old Man to visit CLT rehearsal space for play reading

Tuesday night, 7 p.m.

Courtenay Little Theatre is presenting another of its popular Event Night play readings on Tuesday, April 21 at its rehearsal space, 1625 McPhee Ave., and is inviting community members to attend.  Doors open at 7 p.m., with admission by freewill donation at the door.   Help yourself to tea and coffee, with announcements beginning at 7:15 p.m.

The 45-minute play reading of Lewis John Carlino’s one-act play entitled The Dirty Old Man, will begin promptly at 7:30.  Directed by Kirstin Humpherys, the cast includes Brian Mather, Heather Barner and Percy Gledhill.

Lewis John Carlino is best known as a scriptwriter and director. He directed The Great Santini and wrote I Never Promised You a Rose Garden. He also wrote plays and The Dirty Old Man gives us an example of his skill. This is a story of an Old Man who is indulging in memories and wine while sitting in his favourite spot overlooking the sea. Enter Holly and Chuck, teenagers looking for a place to pursue some private intimacy. The Old Man’s presence changes everything, leading to a stunning climax which leaves the Old Man and the audience alike contemplating the complexity of growing old.

Seating is limited for this popular event so please arrive promptly at 7.
