A world premiere reading of a new two-act comedy, The Southern Way by Larry Ukolowicz, will take place on Sunday, August 5 at Stage West in Fort Worth.

The reading will feature several Theatre Wesleyan students and alumni both on stage and behind-the-scenes.  Current theatre majors Alexandra Flurry, Kimberly Owen, and Skylar Peters have been cast in the reading, along with recent graduates Michelle Phillips and Holli Price.  Kevin Dawson, currently a senior theatre major, will stage manage and participate in the reading.

Flurry and Dawson are 2018 recipients of the Lawrence Ukolowicz Award for Playwriting at Texas Wesleyan University for their student work during Theatre Wesleyan's Playmarket program and the Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival.

The reading for The Southern Way begins at 6:45pm at Stage West (821 West Vickery Boulevard, Fort Worth, Texas, 76104) and is free and open to the public.

About the play

Several serial bear trap murders are occurring in a small southern town. This is not a laughing matter...or is it? Come take the journey of these murders through the eyes of five local residents as they uncover bits of information of this devastating case. Watch and listen as these clues lead us to the execution of the guilty party. But was she framed? Decide for yourself in this sassy, sometimes silly and slapstick story of five female friends who, even to the day of the execution, remain true friends.

No one under 17 will be admitted due to adult situations and language. There will be a short talkback session following the reading.
