Friday June 21 at 2:00 in the Gathering Room. This month’s selection is a script from Steve Allen’s lauded television show, “Meeting of Minds.”
Allen envisioned the show as a stimulating round-table discussion conducted like any other talk show – except that the participants would be actors portraying some of the greatest minds and most prominent figures of history. Accordingly, such characters as Aristotle, Catherine the Great, Oliver Cromwell, Emily Dickinson, Margaret Sanger, Gandhi, Thomas Paine, Cleopatra, Theodore Roosevelt, and St. Thomas Aquinas appear in startlingly effective juxtaposition, their characters revealed through brilliantly conceived dialogue.
You may pick up a copy of the script at the circulation desk on the second floor. Please sign up.
