"Play With Your Food" is back by popular demand, and no, it's not a program for finicky eaters.
The lunchtime series, to be held on July 15 from noon to 1:30 p.m. at the Weston Library, includes lunch catered by Peter's Market followed by one-act plays staged by professional actors. Westport's Nancy Diamond and Carole Schweid have put together more than 60 plays that have been performed in Westport, Greenwich, Stamford and Fairfield.
This is the third year for the program, which is sponsored by the Friends of the Weston Library. Leslie Geller, the group's president, said "Play With Your Food" has been one of the most popular events organized by Friends of the Library. "Last year was a sellout and we expect that this year will be the same," she said. "We are thrilled that so many Weston residents have enjoyed being able to see friends, eat a nice lunch and then watch terrific theater, all at our library."
The lineup for this year includes "It's All About Forgiveness" by Albi Gorn, about a dead woman struggling to forgive her husband for murdering her; "The Trip" by Stephanie Keys, a "touching look at a mother-daughter relationship"; and "Signs of Life" by Fred Stroppel.
Reservations for the event are required. Tickets are $25 each and checks can be made out to the Friends of the Weston Library and be dropped off at the library desk or mailed to : Weston Public Library, 56 Norfield Road, Weston, CT 06883 by July 9. A choice of chicken salad, turkey or a vegetable sandwich for lunch must be indicated in the memo section of the check. Lunch will be served outside if the weather is nice.
