Hendersonville Theatre Play Reading 2022Saturday, Sept. 10 at 4 p.m.

Two short original one acts will be read this month.

The Art of Conning by Beth Norris and Allison Starling

Three con artists make their living by taking advantage of the most vulnerable people groups- the elderly. However, they seem to have met their match when they encounter the strong willed Miriam, whose battle with dementia causes all sorts of shenanigans to ensue.
Beth Norris and Allison Starling have been friends since they met in college where they were both theatre majors. What started as goofing off with friends turned into a project for them in their playwriting class. This is the result. Currently they serve as the Associate Artistic Director and Secretary, respectfully, of Hendersonville Theatre.

Featuring area actors: Joan Rinchisen, Gary McClain, Tate Albert, Maddison McMahan, and Rowan Duncan.


Lucky Women by Catherine Gillet

June and Lois consider their lives over a game of cards at a Health Spa in the Catskills.
Catherine Gillet is a playwright, whose published and award winning plays have been produced in numerous venues Off Broadway and around the country. While a member of the Playwrights Project at Circle Repertory Company she studied with (among others) Craig Lucas, Paula Vogel, and Lanford Wilson. Happily re-located from NY to Tryon, she is the co-founder of Shakespeare & Friends (Our Town, The Light in the Piazza) and Director of The Dark Horse Theater Project.

Featuring area actors: Darlene Cah and Donald Beck.

A short discussion will follow each reading to provide feedback to the playwright about the script.


The reading will be held on the Hendersonville mainstage at 229 S. Washington Street, Hendersonville, NC. There is no charge to attend or to participate, however donations are welcome and will be used to support HT.
