Out of One Glass
Written by Margaret Lynch
Directed by Caroline Jackson Smith
Featuring: Brian McNally, John Busser, Molly McGinnis, and others still to join
Out of One Glass follows the fortunes of three Irish immigrant brothers who become embroiled in a web of collusion and betrayal between labor unions, the police department, and racketeers as they try to make their way in Cleveland ca. 1928. IRA activity in Liverpool in 1920, speakeasies, the building of the Terminal Tower, and memories of a simpler time on a remote island off the coast of western Ireland all provide a backdrop. The reading is directed by Caroline Jackson Smith, Associate Professor in the Theater and African American Studies Departments at Oberlin College.

Little Box, a series of staged readings of new work in development, is a part of CPT's commitment to local playwrights and producers. Now in its fourth year, Little Box is modeled after CPT's successful Big [BOX] Series but on a smaller scale, designed to foster works at an earlier stage of development.
