The Cherry offers its stage to readings of new works by local playwrights—offering the audience a "first look" at rising talents while offering the creators a forum to hone their works. It starts with the work of a master in the theater world: Tom Stoppard's Travesties (7:30pm, July 31), a fractured recollection of James Joyce, Lenin and Tristan Tzara by an aged British man. Salinas' Jeffrey T. Heyer is next, with Frankenstein, Prometheus Bound (7:30pm, Aug. 1), about a feverish meeting between Victor Frankenstein and Arctic explorer Robert Walton, read by the Actors Collective. Additional readings include Whitman Sampler by Patrice Parks (7:30pm, Aug. 7), "Philos" by David Beech (3pm, Aug. 8), Brooklyn 1961 by Jane Press (7:30pm Aug. 8), and Jesus Hickey by Luke Yankee (2pm, Aug. 9). Get it while it's fresh. [WR]
