Mississippi Bend Players is proud to present a virtual reading of Sarah Ruhl’s play, For Peter Pan on Her 70th Birthday this Friday Aug 14 at 7:30 p.m.

Filled with Quad Cities references and memories of the past, Ruhl lovingly wrote the piece which explores life, death and the allure of never growing up for her mother, Kathleen Kehoe Ruhl. MBP is thrilled that Kathleen will be reprising the role she inspired in this one-night only presentation which will be followed by a Q & A session with the cast and playwright Sarah Ruhl.

To sign up for this livestream today, visit https://app.arts-people.com/index.php?show=116366. A zoom link to the performance will be sent on Friday Aug 14 at noon.

MBP will gratefully be accepting donations from those who choose to attend.  They understand finances are difficult for many right now, but they don’t want money to be a hurdle to enjoying the arts. If you are able to make a donation at this time, Mississippi Bend Players will use your tax-deductible donation to further their mission of providing excellence in entertainment and education in the coming years!
