Seminole Heights Branch Library
"Love You Back," is an original radio play by Jim Wicker, set in the Seminole Heights Branch Library and involving the Sunshine State Readers program. Live sound effects performed by Matt Cowley. The performance is FREE and open to the public!
Jim Wicker is a noted area actor, who electrified Tampa Repertory Theatre's stage in last month's production of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. A resident of Seminole Heights, Jim is an actor, director, dramaturg, playwright and designer, and spent 32 years as a theatre educator. Jim is heavily involved with new play development, and is the Literary Manager for the WMNF-Studio@620 Radio Theatre Project, now entering its 6th year of live performances.
Jim's play will be performed by members of the Improbable Athanaeum Theatre Company, directed by Jo Averill-Snell. Improbable Athanaeum is a longtime theatre troupe based in Seminole Heights, whose work invovles strong female roles, and the chance to create innovative, unusual art. You can find out more about their work, which involves mythic elements, magic realism, surrealism and opportunities for collaboration across artistic disciplines, at http://improbableathenaeum.org/Home.html. The troupe will also present a short companion piece to, "Love You Back."
This is free and open to the public!
