Attending a play with your eyes closed

November 13th, 2009 by Richard Grinnell

So, what’s a BOP-RAP? Why, it’s a Bunch Of People Reading A Play of course. The other night Jan and I went to the Eureka Springs Writer’s Colony to listen to a play. A group of folks in town have been getting together a couple of times a month for a play reading. They pick a play, assign parts and then they read their parts without actually acting out the play. We didn’t know what to expect, but it was quite enjoyable just sitting around on the couch and listening. While there was no physical acting, the actors (readers) still ‘acted’ out their parts using their voices.

The play was “I Hate Hamlet” by Paul Rudkin and it was hilarious. The group will be taking a break for the holiday season in Eureka Springs, AR., but plan on reviving their readings sometime after the first of the year.

The Writer’s Colony is only about 2-3 minutes drive from our bed and breakfast so it’s easy to get to. If you’ll be in town, you may want to checkout whether they will be doing a reading. And, if you are so inclined, you could be asked to read a part. Enjoy!
