“Message to Billy” Is a Serious Comedy [Berkshire on Stage]
On Tuesday (August 9), Multicultural BRIDGE Social Justice In Action campaign will offer a rehearsed reading of a new one-act play, Message to Billy, hosted by Diana Felber Gallery in West Stockbridge, written by Steven Somkin and directed by Andrew Joffe with actors Lora Lee Ecobelli and Eddie Allen.
Steve Somkin offers this Social Justice In Action fundraiser to benefit Multicultural BRIDGE. CEO and Founding Director, Gwendolyn VanSant, “I am delighted to bring this play that covers the intersections of bias, race, class and gun control and conversation to our Berkshire community. I look forward to sharing Steven Somkin’s work and facilitating an engaged conversation afterwards.”
The underlying question of Message to Billy, a serious comedy, is what does it tell our children about ourselves when we let uncomfortable and unwelcome prejudices out in the open.
