About this event

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, will be dramatized in a special theatrical reading. Mardra Thomas will direct and star in a staged reading of Sandra Seaton’s adaptation. Afterward, Mardra alongside Sandra, who has written two other one-act plays based on Colter stories, will participate in a question and answer with the Zoom crowd.

This event is hosted by the Chicago Literary Hall of Fame, and in partner with Guild Literary Complex, Cliff Dwellers, and Chicago Writers Association. 

I’ll be looking for you, Mardra
