In 1912, Irish playwright St. John Greer Ervine wrote “The Magnanimous Lover,” a short drama about a young woman who stands up for herself against convention and expectation. Critical reaction was mixed.

So Ervine fired back one year later by writing “The Critics,” a comedy about the supposed experts who turn their nose up at Hamlet because of the bad language and the complete lack of dancing elephants.

Falconbridge Players presents these two classic short plays as staged readings, Tuesday November 29 7 PM at Arts + Literature Laboratory, 111 S. Livingston St. in Madison.

Free and open to the public. Reserve priority seating on Eventbrite.
