Script-in-Hand Series Presents Wendy Wasserstein’s The Sisters Rosensweig

p>The Kansas City Public Library continues the sixth season of its signature Script-in-Hand series with a Metropolitan Ensemble Theatre production of The Sisters Rosensweig by Wendy Wasserstein on Sunday, March 25, 2012, at 2 p.m. at the Central Library, 14 W. 10th St.

With the theme Women of the Years, the 2012 Script-in-Hand season features some of the most compelling female leads in drama.

On the occasion of her 54th birthday, Sara reconnects with her far-flung sisters, dispensing blunt advice to resolve their problems in the style that made her a high-profile banker. But the conversation is not unilateral, and even Sara walks away with her mind (and perhaps her heart) pried open. Very much in keeping with the tone of Wasserstein's trailblazing presentations of strong female characters, this play is considered her most hopeful.

Admission is free.RSVP online or call 816.701.3407. Free parking is available at the Library District Parking Garage at 10th & Baltimore.

Funding for the 2012 Script-in-Hand series is provided by a grant from the William T. Kemper Foundation - Commerce Bank, Trustee, with additional support from the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation.

A public reception following this performance of The Sisters Rosensweig is sponsored by the Friends of the Kansas City Public Library.

This event is co-sponsored by the UMKC Women's Center.
