Purple Rose Actors Read Redwood Curtain


A piano prodigy searches for her father. A Vietnam vet seeks refuge from society. An heiress fears her niece's obsession with the past threatens to unearth family secrets.

Together, these three individuals seek resolution buried deep within the redwood forests of California.

Join Purple Rose Theatre actors for a FREE concert reading of Redwood Curtain, an American classic by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Lanford Wilson and stay after to share your thoughts on the script.
