Don’t miss the last Salon of the season!
The Sandreckoner by Dan Dietz
Sunday, May 21st
State Theatre, 719 Congress Ave. (map)
A student. A teacher. A pizza. A gun. An ancient mathematical problem.
A terribly modern tragedy. Just another night in the suburbs. Featuring Ken Bradley, Jeffery Mills, and Rebecca Robinson. Salons will go on hiatus for June and July and will resume with a membership event in August.
