IN-PERSON OR VIRTUAL EVENT: Dramatic Short Play Readings for Your Events
Ongoing – Schedule it for your event or occasion!
30-Minute, 60-Minute, & 110-Minute Scripts Based on the Wilsons’ Letters
Available for Amateur Volunteers or Experienced Actors, Script available in English
The historical letters and recordings in the Stepping Stones Foundation Archive are the basis for three presentations that bring the true story of Bill and Lois Wilsons’ journey to life using their own words. The original 110-minute play, In Their Own Words: Bill & Lois Wilson, sparked the making of two new short plays that are now available for readings of 30 and 60 minutes in length. These do not require complicated staging, props, or costumes. They are perfect for amateur or professional use at group anniversaries, events, picnics, conferences, round-ups, retreats, young peoples’ programs, or other online or in-person gatherings. To learn more about the process and licensing fees, email Play Consultant Laurie Heffner-Lewis at email@example.com
