On the heels of its stage production of "To Kill A Mockingbird," Prime Stage Theatre will present a seated reading of "Take Me Out" playwright Richard Greenberg's play "Three Days of Rain" next Sunday, Nov. 20, at 7 p.m. at the Prime Stage Studio, 840 Saw Mill Run Blvd., West End. ‚Äč

Vince Ventura directs the reading, part of the theater's 20th-anniversary season, which continues the themes of memory, family and legacy that are part of "To Kill a Mockingbird."

Tickets are $15  at www.primestage.com or $20 at the door; all ages are welcome.

The play is described as "an intergenerational story during which three adult children of two successful architects piece together their family histories through their personal memories and impressions, as well as a journal belonging to their father. The characters learn to discover their parents, not as monsters or saints, but as human beings."

Greenberg is a veteran playwright with degrees from Harvard, Princeton and Yale. He won a Tony Award in 2003 for "Take Me Out," which premiered in London and, later that year, on Broadway.

The reading is part of Prime Stage's 2nd Stage@Prime Stage series.
