Willimantic, Conn. - Anthony Piccione, theatre student at Eastern Connecticut State University, will present a stage reading of his play "We the People" at 7 p.m. on Nov. 9 in the Student Center Theatre.
Set in an alternative reality, "We the People" tells the story of the second American Revolution in the 21st century, and how far one man is willing to go to save his family from suffering. The play describes how when society is given the right amount of unrest and turmoil, a large populist movement could easily lead to a revolution in the United States of America.
The event will last roughly 2 ½ hours, and will include a straight read-through of the full-length play by community and professional theatre actors. Following the play will be a brief open discussion, during which the audience will have an opportunity to provide feedback.
