Life is Not What it Seems (2019)

Reader's Theatre has been called theatre of the imagination and is a creative way to present all kinds of literary texts. Settings, props and costumes are used to a limited degree requiring the audience to participate by using their imaginations. It then becomes a living experience for both audience and readers.

Four short stories were adapted for the stage by Cherie Baunton.

Under each photograph is the story title.
