How to Kill a Cactus
by T.L. Penberthy

Cathy tries hard to fit in in the small Mississippi town where Paula, her partner, grew up, but the plants are too green and menacing – especially a mystical old oak tree in their backyard. Focusing all of her loneliness and misery on the oak tree, she gladly cuts it down when it suddenly – and suspiciously – dies. But when the entire town starts to die, Cathy must sacrifice herself to atone for her mistakes, revive the town, and bring Paula back to her.

The Readers' Theater has served as a fantastic resource to bring together actors, readers and playwrights in an entertaining and educational environment for the last three years. With a focus on presenting new works, this program allows writers to learn about their own work by seeing and hearing it aloud, and provides a wonderful setting in which all participants experience opportunities to develop his or her craft.

Admission to the Readers' Theater is free and the playwright will be available for discussion following the reading. All Readers' Theater events take place at 7:00 pm in the classroom wing at the south end of the Shoreline Center, 18560 1st Ave NE, Shoreline unless otherwise posted.
