About The Mad Lover

Returning home after a successful military career, Memnon struggles to adjust to life beyond the army camp. When he falls desperately in love with Princess Calis, he is tempted to make the ultimate romantic sacrifice. Join us for this lively script-in-hand performance and celebrate 25 years of our popular Read Not Dead series. The Read Not Dead ground rules are simple. Actors rehearse the play once and present it, script in hand, to an audience later that afternoon. The performances are instinctive, adrenaline driven and inventive. Actors and audiences alike share in the excitement of reviving these forgotten plays that definitely deserve to be Read Not Dead
