Theatre Nova in Ann Arbor will present R.D. Wakeman's play Blight in a staged reading Sunday 27th October 2019. Blight is set in a mansion in an absurdist dystopian world where people and belongings are disappearing from the house and from memory. Food is sparse, there's some sort of blight, pills are prescribed by those in power, a strange circus has come to town, and spies are everywhere. No-one seems too concerned except Nanny but she won't find her way out unless she actually looks for one.

There will be audience feedback following the reading. Thanks to all those involved & to Theatre Nova for including Blight in it's Michigan Playwrights Festival 2019.
