A Word For Word Staged Reading:
Off the Page: John Cheever
Featuring "The Swimmer"
Monday, December 3, 2018 at 7:00PM

Z Space
450 Florida Street
San Francisco, CA 94110


Directed by Joel Mullennix

Off the Page staged readings are the first step in developing a Word for Word production—taking a short story from the page to the stage. Come see the very first steps of our process, and, after the reading, let us know what you think!

Join us for “The Swimmer” by John Cheever. This “brilliant chronicler of American suburbia led a tortured double life filled with sexual guilt, alcoholism and self-loathing.” (The Guardian). He is sometimes called "the Chekhov of the suburbs".

Suggested donation of $20 per ticket—add a gift to Word for Word when reserving your tickets online, or make a cash contribution at the door.
