Press Release:  Final Performances of World Premiere Production of “Life is Mostly Straws” by Richard Manley booked at The Studio@620 this weekend.

For Immediate Release

St. Petersburg, FL (March 1, 2016)    —  The Studio@620 is proud to be the first theatre to mount a full production of Richard Manley's play "Life is Mostly Straws". With an all-star cast of amazing talent, this show is a must-see.  Featuring Kylin Brady, Chris Jackson, and Christopher Rutherford.
Directed by Bob Devin Jones

Synopsis: "Life is Mostly Straws" centers around David and Noah, two brothers
who shared a troubled childhood, during which they relied upon each other for
survival. Although successful by all outward signs and still very close, the fear
and self-doubt of their early days lie just beneath the surface of their apparent
confidence. As well, they have made words their weapon of choice. "Life is
Mostly Straws" is a literate play, where one character uses language like a
scalpel while the other wields it like a bludgeon, but each understands its power.

“Last weekend’s opening performances had the audience laughing and gasping as the actors took them on a thrill ride of emotion. In an intimate setting like The Studio, the players and the audience are so close that you really feel part of the scene.”  -- stage manager Matt Schwartz

About Richard Manley: After two decades of success as a copywriter and advertising executive, Richard Manley started a second career writing stage plays. He rediscovered his passion for the sound of the language and its potential to entertain and provoke and inspire.
