Family secrets. Conflicting desires. Hidden ambitions. The Roustabouts presents this creatively-produced filmed reading in an exciting, experimental, and beautiful new way. "Book of Leaves" made its debut in Chicago and this reading is proudly offered for the first time on the West Coast by The Roustabouts. This unique virtual reading, a fascinating presentation of Cooper’s emotionally-rich family drama, features six of San Diego’s finest actors and was filmed by the multiple Emmy award-winning Mike Brueggemeyer. In this contemporary drama, Walter’s grown children don’t know he’s dying of cancer, and they have secrets of their own. Over the course of a long weekend at his tree-shrouded home, many truths come to light, including what happened to his wife, their mother, who died seventeen years earlier. Conflicting desires, wants, and hidden ambitions converge in a suspenseful, emotionally charged story that will surprise, and move, mature audiences. A fascinating presentation of Cooper’s powerful, emotionally-rich family drama.
