Wagner College hosts a staged reading of the 2019 Stanley Drama Award-winning script, Carl L. Williams's "Some Other Verse." The playwright will be in attendance and will have a Q&A after the reading.
"Some Other Verse" — A young man intent on living a dissolute, artistic life as a poet becomes infatuated with a new love, but he soon encounters two life-changing dilemmas. Will economic necessity, along with the insistence of his older sister, compel him to forsake his poetic life and accept a mundane, regular job? And, when confronted with the opportunity, will he choose to sacrifice love in exchange for artistic success? Poetry, romance and self-interest intersect in the ever-shifting flow of a young man’s life.
