Plays have power. They “hold a mirror up to nature.” (Thanks, Shakespeare.) Each month Boston Court Pasadena will read a play that is vitally relevant to something happening in the world today and then have a casual community conversation about the script and the story.
The first book club discussion will discuss “Bars and Measures” by Idris Goodwin on Sunday, Aug. 16 at 4 p.m.
“Bars and Measures” is a play about two brothers, both musicians. Classical pianist Eric is Christian and jazz bassist Bilal is Muslim. Separated by prison bars and religious convictions, the brothers connect through their shared language of music.
The cost of this event is $9. That price covers the cost of Boston Court providing a PDF copy of the script to each participant with special arrangement from Playscripts, Inc.
