The Los Alamos Senior Centers will host two free performances of a brief play, “Swerving,” written by local playwright Robert F. Benjamin. It will be performed as a “concert reading” by Caroline (“Pip”) Evarts and John Gustafson, with Sally Cassil narrating. “Swerving” premiered during the 2015 8x10 Short-Play Festival at Los Alamos Little Theatre. Performances at senior centers this month use an expanded script with a run-time is 16 minutes.
“Swerving” is a comedy is about how a codger’s wisdom, longing and congeniality transform a stormy confrontation with a policewoman into a moment of shared compassion.
The two performances will be:
• White Rock Senior Center, 7 p.m. Thursday. White Rock Senior Center is temporarily located just east of Metzgers in the building formerly known as “The Hive.”
• Betty Ehart Senior Center, 12:45 p.m. Jan. 27.
No reservations, but seating is limited for both shows.
