Former Milwaukee Shakespeare company Goats & Monkeys will be hosting a staged reading of a new play featuring a kind of a strange mix of talent on Monday. Itís a staged reading of a new play with the breathtakingly forgettable title The Best of All Possible Worldsa new play by Alice Austen. Paula Suozzi directs a cast including Equity actors Amy J. Carle, Mark Ulrich Milwaukee Rep resident actress Laura Gordon and local film guy Mark Metcalf. The above cast is joined by talented non-union dramatic actor Clayton Hamburg and Eric Scabla.

The G&M website describes the plot of the script like this:

ďa contemporary meditation on fathers and sons, a fraying family and the toll of modern conflicts on the family unit.Ē

Okay, so--granted it†sounds kind of forgettable and nondescript, but even the best drama would come across sounding incredibly boring †in a twenty-word description.

Goats & Monkeysí reading of The Best of All Possible Worlds starts at 8pm on February 7th at the Milwaukee Repís Stackner Cabaret. Tickets† to the show are free. For reservations ,email Goats & Monkey at reservations@goatsandmonkeys.org
