Shadow Theatre is excited to invite you to a Zoom reading of the exciting new comedy The Wrong People Have Money by our own Reed McColm. This wonderful satire is one of our orphaned plays which was canceled when COVID hit. The play was scheduled for its premiere production by Shadow in the 2019/20 season, and our intention is to get it on stage as soon as we are able. In the meantime we’ve gathered the cast and playwright for a full reading on Zoom. And we want you to be there!
The Wrong People Have Money
by Reed McColm
Popular York University professor Martin Delancey is challenged by a wealthy consortium of investors to conduct a serious study into the feasibility of an “impossible” suggestion he raises in his classroom: Is it possible to move the country of Greenland, in its entirety, south in the Atlantic, thereby bringing the planet a newly habitable land mass? Delancey and his team encounter myriad obstacles in that study, but also increasingly excited worldwide interest, which may just turn a wild idea into a major business opportunity.
The reading will take place on Saturday May 29th at 7 P.M. (MST). It is free to everyone. (Donations, however, will be gratefully accepted and appreciated. We suggest $10 for this event.)
