St. Louis Writers' Group presents Jim Greer's BAD THINGS FOR GOOD REASONS Tonight!

St. Louis Writers' Group presents a play reading.

"Bad Things for Good Reasons"
by Jim Greer

The play takes place in rural, southern Missouri at the home of the main character, Al. What starts out as a friendly visit soon turns into a tragedy that will forever change the lives of all those involved. The characters range from Al Peroni( 52 year old, uneducated scam artist), Valerie (a beautiful 22 year old, that is uneducated and has been abused), Billy (26 years old, fun loving maintenance man), Lisa (Billy's 28 year old wife, educated, lusty) and Mark (32 year old high school history teacher, good looking, but very naïve).

About the Author: Jim brings over 30 years of experience in the theatre to his new found interest of playwriting. He is recently retired from SLCC at Meramec. As Director of Theatre he directed over 90 productions and taught a wide variety of theatre related classes. He received his MA in theatre from SIUE. He is very involved with theatre and the arts on a state, regional, and national level. Among his many awards is the Kennedy Center Gold Medallion for achievement in educational theatre.
