A One Night Only reading of LIFE AND DEATH, the new original
play by Bob Bowersox, author of the much-acclaimed PERSON OF INTEREST, MOMENT
OF GRACE, and THE POETRY OF HEARTS, all of which World-Premiered on the stage
of the Red Barn. LIFE AND DEATH is a delightful fantasy that takes a funny but
profound look at what would happen if Death suddenly decided he didn’t want to
BE Death anymore. A top-flight cast will read the new script live on stage.

Last year’s popular theatre panel discussions return to

The glory days of the radio serial are brought to vivid life
on stage as this new addition to Summer Stage brings back THE WAR OF THE WORLDS, BOSTON BLACKIE, THE BICKERSONS, and SUSPENSE THEATRE. Top Key West actors
recreate the actual radio broadcasts on stage, complete with sound effects and
vintage commercials…but it’s what happens during
the commercials that will have you howling.
