“The Lookout”

Saturday, June 12, 2021
7 p.m. CDT

via Zoom

Brought to you by Chicago Literary Hall of Fame, Chicago Writers Association, Cliff Dwellers, and Guild Literary Complex.

Cyrus Colter's 1970 short story "The Lookout," in which aspiring socialite Mildred stalks a Woodlawn street to witness the goings on at a party to which she was not invited, was dramatized in a special theatrical reading. Mardra Thomas directed and starred in a staged reading of Sandra Seaton's adaptation. Eric May introduced Colter and his work. Afterward, Mardra and Sandra, who has written two other one-act plays based on Colter stories, participated in a question and answer with the Zoom crowd. The Guild Literary Complex, Cliff Dwellers, and Chicago Writers Association teamed up with the Chicago Literary Hall of Fame to present this program.
