Reader disgusted with CLT’s choice of play

Dear editor,

Re: Courtenay Little Theatre features comedy reading.

Comedy or bad taste?  Woody Allen in Play it Again Sam wrote:  “Dames are simple.  I never met one who didn’t understand a slap in the mouth or a slug from a .45.”

It is astounding that this repugnant material was chosen by the Little Theatre in the first place, and then that the papers should promote it.

When young men and boys see this sort of thing the violence is perpetuated.

That attitude wasn’t funny in the ’70s and to condone it in this day and age as an “entertaining evening” is beyond belief.
