Silverthorne Theater Company’s 2021 Theater Thursdays play reading series kicks off on May 13, with When We Get Good Again by Northampton playwright James McLindon. This free event will be available to watch starting at 7:30 p.m. on the Silverthorne Theater Company YouTube channel.
Tracy can’t wait to graduate and leave the rich kids at her prestigious school in her rear view mirror. In fact, she’s planning on graduating in three years, and only partly because that’s all the college she can afford. But there’s one problem: Tracy needs to keep her 4.0 GPA intact to get into a top law school to have even a chance of getting one of the few public interest jobs available to represent the poor. And the only way she can get all her work done by the end of the semester while holding down two work-study jobs is to take a short vacation from her ethics and buy a term paper from Hire Education.
When We Get Good Again is a play about integrity, excuses, and doing the right thing … as soon as you can figure out exactly what that is.
